No, it’s not a hot tomato, but if you need a tomato that can set fruit in summer’s heat, try Solar Fire. Known for bearing heavy loads of medium-sized red tomatoes, Solar Fire can be planted in spring or at midseason to extend the harvest into fall. Resistant to fusarium races 1, 2, and 3, as well as gray-leaf spot, it has what is needed to get through the dog days. If the season is rainy, Solar Fire resists cracking to assure a good harvest. You’€™ll see this variety on our shelves a little later in the planting season as heat becomes an issue with tomatoes.

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.

Solar Fire Tomato is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful tomato! I grew this tomato for the first time this year, 2017. I was so impressed by the quality, quantity, and lack of cracking on the fruit. I grew three different types and this was the only crack resistant tomato of the group. The flavor was great too. I will plant this one again next year

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tomato Variety I Ever Grew Every year now for YEARS I have grown tomato's in my backyard, planting about 20-24 plants every season. I tried these last year, with spectacular results! After all my years of growing i said to myself "Why grow ANY other variety?" But I will boost up my count this year to 6 plants, along with a few Celebriies, some early girls, and some Sun Sugars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had 600 tomatos from 8 plants I am not exaggerating. At one point the vines were approximately 9 feet long. They had completely doubled over my tomato cages. I grew them in Jefferson County TX about 2012. I used a raised bed with plenty of morning and midday sun with afternoon shade. I watered them only in the mornings right before dawn. I had incorporated compost in to the bed, so I only fertilized about once every 4 to 6 weeks. If these plants are treated right and the pests are controlled, there is no reason for not having a high yield.
