Homestead 24 and Celebrity do well in heat, but I would bet they wouldn't produce until fall if planted now.

Celebrity is the only ones I plant besides Cherry tomato's. They have done very well this summer.

Even my cherry tomatoes stop setting fruit about mid-july. They start setting fruit again in late September but have trouble turning red before the first freeze. Probably something to do with the reduced amount of sunlight in the fall.

I only plant celebrity tomatoes. I mostly use my tomatoes for sandwiches and salads. I don't have the patients to deal with cherry tomatoes.

Sun Gold is a small yellow tomato(yes a cherry size) and starts early and sets fruit and ripens until frost. 2 plants are ample for two people and you can't keep em all eat but they are a wonderful sweet tomato.

I wouldn't worry about heat varieties now. You would want to plant those in the spring. You want to start planting fall tomatoes now. Texas A&M explains the math somewhere on their Ag site but I couldn't locate it on a quick search before posting, but I'll look again later. But this is the jest of it.

Let's take Celebrity as an example. It's a 65 day tomato. 65 days from July 1st. is Sept 4th. Avg temps start to go down and the tomatoes aren't under the heat stress and start to produce. You get to harvest Sept-Early/Mid Nov. All this will change some depending on actual temps but gives you a basic idea,

I cut way back this year. I only put in 6 plants. They were done a few weeks back. I looked and saw that a couple had stared a second growth. I don't expect the quality that I first got. My they won't ripen. Take a peek.

That hasn't been my experience. Days start getting shorter on june 27,so you're dealing with reduced sunlight. But temperatures keep climbing until august 10. Most of my plants completely stop all growth mid-july thru mid-sept. Planting tomato seeds on july 1 and eating ripe ones on sept 4? Noah Fence but I'd have to see that to believe it.

Yeah I don't plant seed this time of year. I plant clones or purchased plants. I did it with some Porters a couple years ago or so and did good. I'll clone some of my Viva Italia's tonight and see how they do the rest of the year.

Indoor grown tomatoes. They seem to handle the outside heat just fine.
