Celebrity vines bear clusters of 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 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for a container!: Last year I had a large garden but now I live in a one bedroom apt. with a deck so "vegetable garden" is limited to one celebrity tomato plant in a 17' wide container. I water the plant every other day with 2 gallons of water. The plant is supported by a round red metal frame and has grown to be close to 7 1/2 ft tall. I planted it in late May and today (Aug 25th) I count 50 tomatoes on it. They grow in clumps of 4 or 5 tomatoes of moderate size. 4 bright red tomatoes, the rest are still green. Love the taste. great in sandwiches!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tomato plant for container: Love this tomato plant. I planted it in a container. It didn't get too big (which is good) and it has had many clusters of tomatoes. I've picked about 15 ripe tomatoes so far and there are still a lot more growing on the plant. I give it tomato plant food once a week and it seems very happy - very bushy and green. I have to prune it every other week or it would be too bushy. I live in Los Angeles. Will definitely grow it again next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bright red tomatoes. I put them in a container and I couldn't keep up with the amount of tomatoes it produced. I think for the entire season it yielded about 60 tomatoes. I shared with friends and neighbors. It didn't grow too tall which is great, but unfortunately it did fall victim to a hornworm which ate about half of it, but it recovered and was still producing well into late September early October. Will grow again this summer 2016!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best tomato I've ever grown. Been growing for 15 years...almost all my life. To whom this may concern, give tomatoes time turn red. Also, try using eggshell... 1 to a plant. Set it in sun for a day and it'll crush easier. Mix it in the first three inches of soil. It supplies the calcium a plant needs to grow. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live in North Texas where the growing season is long and the summers are incredibly hot. The Celebrity tomato grows very well here. In the heat of summer, I shade them and they will produce more fruit in the fall. It would be helpful if posters tell us where they are planting. What works in Minnesota may not work in Florida. I've been buying Bonnie plants for years and I have never been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tomato Plant for Containers!: I'm updating my review that I wrote in July. This tomato plant has been fantastic. The fruit is delicious. It has produced a huge yield - probably in excess of a 100 tomatoes from one plant. It's now the beginning of November and it's still covered in green tomatoes (I live in Los Angeles where it's still warm). Will definitely replant this next year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best: These are large. I have grown these many times and have pictures of them on a scale. One tomatoe weighing up to 1 1/2 pounds. Today is June 27, 2013 and my plants are loaded with tomatoes and blooms. I grow mine in pots. Just have to make sure the soil pH is correct for tomatoes. I check mine once each week and add the appropriate nutrient if any is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I planted this tomato three years ago and I will only plant this one, it is the best I have had, so please don't stop putting this one out every year! I got my friend to plant the celebrity this year and I know once they eat them they won't plant any other also. Thank You Bonnie Plants for a great tomato!!
