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 27.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Tomato Varity Adapts well to different growing conditions. First time I tried growing this variety in a container. Produces numerous blossoms under confined conditions and the fruit was of good taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from help!! I love bonnie plants and use several varieties. This year I added celebrity and jet star and they look bad, all others are great but these two. Thought not enough water then maybe too much. Leaves are curled up and look dry but soil is not! Any ideas?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first time with Bonnie Plants and I am in love! I just got a house and I have always wanted to grow my own vegetable so I bought these about 2 months ago and my plants just flourished! Celebrity was one of three breeds I bought and all three are doing magnificent. I am so proud of them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the perfect tomato in my area (south western Ontario). My plants are loaded with tomatoes every year and some are up to two pounds! They have great flavor and make my salsa the best I've had! My plants usually make it to about six feet tall and get caged and staked.
