This popular world-famous variety of heirloom tomato produces a bounty of large fruits weighing up to 2 pounds each. This classic slicer has firm, meaty flesh with a rich, sub-acid flavor that is just right for salads, juice, canning, relishes and cooking. These plants have an indeterminate growth habit.
Tomatoes grow well with asparagus, basil, beans, carrots, celery, chives, cucumber, garlic, head lettuce, marigold, mint, nasturtium, onion, parsley, peas, peppers and marigold. Basil will repel flies and mosquitoes from your tomato plants while also improving the growth and flavor. Beebalm, chives and mint will improve the health and flavor of your tomatoes. Keep potatoes, fennel, dill, cabbage and cauliflower away from your tomato plants.
