Celebrity vines bear clusters of medium-large tomatoes that are prized for their flavor. This is a great, all-round, dependable choice for your “basic” tomato needs — sandwiches, slicing, snacks, and bruschetta. Gardeners love that the plants are quite resistant to disease, too. The large, meaty fruit with exceptional flavor are borne on dependable, strong vines that benefit from the support of a cage or stake to keep them upright, especially when loaded with fruit. Celebrity is sometimes considered a semi-determinate tomato plant, because it grows to a certain height (3 to 4 feet) but continues to produce fruit all season until frost.

Resistant to verticillium wilt (V), fusarium wilt races 1 and 2 (F), nematodes, and tobacco mosaic virus (T).

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Celebrity Tomato is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for containers I have a large container garden with many varieties of tomatoes. So far this season, Celebrity is out preforming all the others. Very stocky plant. The fruit is uniform, large and tastes great. Next season, I'll plant almost all Celebrity's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Plant So I was told this plant produces all season till frost. Uh wrong! I got 2 tomatoes from this plant and then the plant just died! For no reason! The soil is perfect, watering was perfect. It just stopped producing fruit and the plant itself died. The two tomatoes I got were great though a little small for my liking but these plants do not produce till the first frost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Celebrity tomatoes are not fasarium resisant I've planted their celebrity plants and they are not fasarium resisant. I just pulled two out of the ground. Of course their warranty is now 30 days which is really no warranty. They say they are fasarium resisant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the tomato for Florida gardens! It came to me in a dream a year and a half ago. Celebrity tomatoes! So last year I planted several of these but had little success due to bug infestation. But I didn't give up, so this year I planted them in very large pots with a fresh mix of garden and potting soil and a good dollop of Black Kow for good measure. Then I added a two inch layer of cypress mulch to help maintain a more constant moisture level, installed large stake supported cages and kept the plants watered and fertilized. The plants grew strong and fairly rapid. Caterpillars were a constant problem so I inspected each plant daily, squishing every creepy crawly that was unfortunate enough to be discovered. With the exception of a few that the bugs bored into, the tomatoes developed into nice large round fruits with no cracking or blossom end rot. Now the plants are totally loaded and the tomatoes are just beginning to blush. I picked a few nice samples today so as not to temp fate... or birds and they are continuing to ripen on my counter top. I figure a day or two and they'll be good to go! I'm really looking forward to my first juicy bite of tomatoey goodness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent I've been a gardener for many years. I've grown many varieties of tomatoes, but always come back to celebrity. It is disease resistant, good producer, and excellent taste. It considered a determinant, but produces more like an indeterminate.
