Heat-tolerant Tomatoes

Here's what I'd like to see... a Sacramento tomato trial that evaluates the best-tasting, highest-yielding heat-resistant tomatoes! Since fruit set is poor at temps above 90-95 degrees F, it seems like we should be looking more closely at varieties that don't faint on a typical July or August day in Sacramento.

Several of the mid-season varieties sold by Tomato Growers Supply are said to fruit well under high heat conditions, including:

Solar Fire (New!)
Solar Set

Anybody grown these locally? How productive are they and how do they taste?
