This is a great choice that bears sizeable fruits on a very compact plant that works well in containers and small gardens. Especially strong, bushy plants bear tasty, medium-sized tomatoes great for sandwiches and slicing. The heavy foliage of this hybrid helps protect tomatoes from sunburn. In our Alabama test garden where the growing season is long and the soil is ideal, plants produce from 90 to 120 tomatoes each over a two-month harvest period. Keep the big harvest going with successive, monthly plantings through July for a fall harvest. Plants are strong and upright, but will still do best in a small cage or on a stake for support.

Resistant to verticillium wilt (V), fusarium wilt (F), and nematodes (N).

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.
