Phoenix tomato really shines in climes where summer heat makes the thermometer mercury rise! Developed for South Texas and places with similar growing conditions, Phoenix sets tasty fruit in summer’s most intense heat. You’ll see flowers and fruit on plants at the same time. Plants ripen heavy loads of medium-sized red tomatoes that are ready for harvest over a short 7- to 10-day period. If the fruit-ripening window shifts to rainy weather, Phoenix tomatoes resist cracking. Phoenix performs well as a fall crop in warmer zones. Plants are resistant to alternaria stem canker (Aal), gray leaf spot (Ss), and verticillium Race 1.

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.

Phoenix Tomato is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best tomato yet for the heat! I live in Las Vegas. I used to live in Phoenix. My father was an organic gardner with an acre back yard. The only tomato plant that should produce before succumbing to the heat was Early Girl. Dad tried new varieties every year, but nothing exceeded Early Girl. I took up after him and in a much smaller garden here in Vegas last year I planted 2 Early Girl plants and 2 Phoenix plants. The tomatoes on the Phoenix were larger (about twice on average) and plentiful. Definitely buying again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tomato for hot area were others do not produce well.: This year I will plant 12 different tomato varities to cover all our various temperature vatiations in Nebraska. The Texas A&M developed Phoenix and Tygress will be part of this group. Last year we had an early frost and I wraped the tomatoes in news paper to ripen. We had tomatoes until Christmas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very productive and heat resistant tomato. Grown in Katy Texas last year. Planted in 25 gallon containers in mid April. 20-25 tomatoes per plant! Give this variety lots of room if your planting in a pot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from These were the first to grow tomatoes but very disappointing. I got 9 total and they were about twice the size of a cherry tomato so not good for much more than eating whole. I will pass next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great: I might be greedy but the only drawback was the size of the tomatoes. The yield was spectacular 150 tomatoes on 9 plants. They where grown in an makeshift greenhouse in albeit in a Southeastern Louisiana climate. (Here south of Lake Pontchartrain we only get 4-6 days when the temp falls below 32 degrees for more than 8 hours)
