Little says summer like a fiery red tomato and Celebrity fits the bill. This All-America Selections award in 1984 is a hybrid offering resistance to multiple diseases. An indeterminate variety, it can grow well in most climates, even ones with cooler nights, although tomatoes love heat and warm nights are nirvana for plant and fruits. Just remember that indeterminate ones tend to sprawl all over the place, so some type of vertical support will keep the vine out of the rows and minimize contact with the soil, which can transmit diseases.
