Big Boy Tomato

A favorite hybrid, the thick walls of Big Boy make perfect slices for the classic tomato sandwich.

Big Boy Tomato

  • Fruit size: 16 to 32 oz
  • Matures: 78 days after planting
  • Plant size: 6 to 10 feet
  • Spacing: 36 inches apart
  • Plant type: Indeterminate

The name, Big Boy, is easy to remember and so is the flavor. This is a big, sandwich-type slicer with smooth, bright red fruit and a flavor that everybody likes. It bears heavily in mid-season, yet the indeterminate vines continue fruiting (though not as heavily) until frost. Plants in our Alabama test garden, where conditions are excellent, have yielded 100 tomatoes each through a 10-week harvest season. Long vines need staking, or grow the plant in a tall cage. Resistant to cracking.

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.
