Which tomatoes to choose?

All tomatoes are good, but some lend themselves more than others to some preparations.
Use the ox hearts that are delicious in the summer and choose them ripe and rich in pulp when you cook them in the oven, and greener when you have to use them raw.
Use small tomatoes with cherries and tomatoes from Pachino for finger foods because they are ideal containers for mousses and creams. Even the San Marzano lend themselves very well to raw preparations.
