It performs well in heat and humidity. It has a smooth, balanced flavor and is delicious in salads and sauces.  This tomato will produce fruit for an extended period of time. Fruit ripens in about 70-75 days from transplant. If you grow them from seed, the first mature fruit will take 91 to 103 days.

  • Uses Notes: This is a garden tomato that will prolifically produce mid-sized tomatoes with truly fantastic taste.  They grow quite large in the landscape, but when grown in a container they are more contained in size.  They do need to be staked or caged to grow them successfully.  This tomato will produce fruit for an extended period of time. If you are growing this plant in a container, a 14" diameter (5-gallon volume) is the minimum necessary size. The ideal size would be a 16" to 20" (7-10 gallon) container. Be sure to provide support by using a tomato cage or other structure in the container.
Maintenance Notes: 

Indeterminate tomatoes will grow quite large.  You will need to use a tomato cage or staking of some sort to support the plants.  They will need to be kept from getting excessively dry. Consistent watering and regular fertilization will be key to keeping your plant in full production mode. They can be grown in containers, a minimum of 12 inches in diameter is suggested, but larger is better.  If grown in containers they will still need to be given the support of a tomato cage or stake of some sort.  These plants are quite disease resistant and with proper care should provide fruit throughout the season.
