When gardeners talk about the “first” tomatoes, Early Girl is always there. This may be the most all-round popular hybrid to satisfy that itch for the first fresh tomato of the season. Use them for slicing on a place, into a salad, or on a sandwich. This a proven all-round early hybrid. Use it to jump start your harvest. Early Girl bears lots of fruit for early harvest, but because the vines are indeterminate, they continue producing through summer. In our Alabama test garden, where conditions are ideal and the growing season is long, we harvest an average of 300 tomatoes from each Early Girl plant! Many gardeners plant it again late in the summer so that it will produce a huge fresh crop of “fall tomatoes” quickly before frost.

Resistant to verticillium wilt (V) and fusarium wilt races 1 and 2 (F).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever had. I just have space for pots. Tried this variety this year for the first time and was stunned at the prolific output. I'm going to plant multiple of these as early as possible next year and try to get in a second planting in late summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed We planted two plants May 2 and did not get our first fruit until the middle of July. The size was the most disappointing. Plants have stopped producing this week. I will try a different variety next year. Note we have planted this variety before and we're very happy with great size and production.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Certainly produces early These produce early and often. I am not a fan of the size though I would be fine with it in a great tasting tomato. They taste like grocery store tomatoes and it seems that no one I give them to ever has anything nice to say about them. The fruit seems to be best used in a mixture of cucumbers, onion, vinegar, and water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tomato pant This plant is a very fast producer of flavorful tomatoes. Not sure what people are saying about the fruit being generally blan or flavorless compared to other varieties. Compares with all the Beefsteak as well as a few of the heirlooms I've grown. This plant also puts out lots of fruit. A very recommendable variety in my book.
