A great garden tomato, this variety is especially popular in Texas, where it made its debut at the 2004 and 2005 San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. Amelia is a hybrid with outstanding disease resistance and resistance to cracking. High-yielding vines bear tomatoes prized for their flavor. Because it makes a nice, neat plant, Amelia is cooperative in containers, too. One of the few tomatoes resistant to spotted wilt virus, it is popular not only in Texas, but throughout the Southeast.

These big tomatoes are the size expected from a home garden. Amelia produces a lot of tomatoes (20 to 30 pounds per plant) over about a month’s harvest time in our Alabama test garden, where the growing conditions are excellent. Resistant to verticillium wilt (V and V1), fusarium wilt races 1, 2, and 3 (F1, 2, 3), nematodes (N), stemphyllium (ST), and tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV).

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.

    After planting several varieties of tomatoes I have settled on Amelia and will only grow them. I live in an extremely hot and humid state and these have produced the best. I do have to use Neam Oil to protect from gypsy months and other hot, humid weather loving pest.

    So far so great. Planting a little a late here in the SC Low Country and found these as the only Tomatoes left at the Neighborhood True Value. I had never heard of the Ameilia. I had always stocked for the garden from a feed and garden store just up the road from the True Value. It turns out the nursery that provided them had spread soil wilt throughout a good portion of the county. I have always preferred celebrity, but the last three years were devastating as I watched plant after plant wilt with a dozen beautiful greeners ripening. Nothing hurts worse than arriving home after work to find three exceptional looking plants wilted as if they had not had water. The spotting on the leaves is the give away. My local ag agent said not to plant in that soil for three years. I have happy go lucky Ameilias in 5 gal pots and they have jumped with the last rain and 80 degree temps. Also beautiful deep green color. Added a tad of horse manure for good measure but used compost with inexpensive potting soil. Excited about what I have read here. They are Bonnie’s by the way.

    I found a flat of Bonnie Plants “Amelia” tomatoes at Walmart about 4 years ago. Since the county I live in is Amelia, I decided to give them a whirl and was not disappointed. They’re not quite as meaty as some varieties (such as Roma), and not quite as good of a slicing/sandwich as a few others. The closest thing I’ve found to them is probably Marglobe, but the Amelia outproduces Marglobe, Beefstock, Better Boy, Roma and others nearly 2 to 1. They are disease resistant, and do well in very dry conditions when other tomatoes are wilting. They are big producers of nice base-ball size tomatoes, and produced for nearly 2 weeks after my other tomatoes were done. If you make a lot of salsa, ketchup, tomato soup, V-8, or marinating sauce, you won’t be disappointed. The hardest part is simply finding a place to buy them.

    I have 12 Bonnie plants which was planted in my chicken yard I only added lime to soil. I have harvested over 5( 5 gal ) buckets of tomatoes. I eat fresh, we have canned, we have given many away. I have been planting these tomatoes for a couple of years and these where the first from Bonnie. The only place I could find these were at Lowes other places carrying Bonnie plants in my area did not carry this plant. A true tomato which produces, and the flavor and size and a plant that is hardy with minimal cageing. I suggest giving these a try.

    Amelia tomatoes are one of the best I have ever planted and grown. They have a super taste. I learned about them 4 years ago. A lot of people do not know about them. After seeing them on the plant and tasting them they’re surprised at how good they are. The taste is great and the plants load up with lots of fruit. No growing problems here. They are well protected naturally. Try them you will find them to be the tomato of the garden now and forever.
