Tomato Plants – Hybrids in Red & Colors
Hybrid tomatoes listed according to day-length. Indeterminate. 4″ Rootmaker pots. Plants ready May 1st; protect from frost.
49 days – 4th of July: Our earliest tomato. 4 oz. slicer/salad tomato. Tasty, extra juicy yet firm.
52 days – Summer Girl: 5-6 oz. 20% higher yield than sister tomato Early Girl.
70 days – Steak Sandwich: 10 oz. Old-fashioned taste, dozens of large, meaty tomatoes for sandwiches and salads.
78 days – Burpee’s Big Boy: 10-16 oz. A favorite since 1949. Large, firm, deep read fruits.
78 days – Brandy Boy: 14 oz. A hybridized version of Brandywine with 4-5 times the yield, 10 days earlier, and greatly improved flavor.
80-85 days – Bodacious: Quoted from Burpee’s catalog: Bodacious is our gorgeous, juicy and prolific new superstar. Lovingly bread by Burpee, these large, round, vibrant, pure-red 10-12 oz. fruits entice with heirloom aromatics and tangy tomato sweetness. Add scrumptious pizzazz to sandwiches, burgers and salads. Toward the end of July, the bonanza begins: compact 5-6′ vines yield 8-10 spectacular fruits a week and a bold, audacious 40-50 per season, per plant; growing in large clusters – easy to pick and no cracking. Excellent “laugh-0ff-blight” resistance. Indeterminate.

75 days – Chef’s Choice Orange: 9-12 oz, glowing orange skin, old-fashioned flavor. Originated from heirloom Amana Orange.
90 days – Chef’s Choice Green: 9-10 oz. Green when ripe, tomatoes have yellow streaks, wonderful, sweet, citrus-like flavor. Pick while still slightly firm.
