Re: Re: seeds

My heirloom tomatoes, "Amish Pink" routinely split as they ripen.  
Doesn't seem in my case to have to do with moisture consistency (the  
other varieties look fine). I use them unless there is evidence of  
secondary infection. They are tasty and meaty, but... for you tomato  
growers out there, what would you recommend for someone (me) who  
wants a red fleshed tomato with minimal seeds and excellent flavor  
for slicing, and combining with paste tomatoes for canning? Hope for  
next year springs eternal!
