Vegetable Tomato 'Big Boy'

Slicing Tomato

Big Boy tomatoes have been around almost as long as we have and they are just as trusted. People like the Big Boy for its firm bright red fruits that can weigh upwards of a pound or more. You should plant 3-5 plants per person or 5-10 plants if you’re going to be canning or preserving them. For the best flavor you should pick your tomatoes when their color has fully developed. If they are green or pink the color will develop but the flavor will not. You can pick them when they are green for great fried, preserved or pickled tomatoes. You need to give these boys plenty of sunlight and keep them moist but not wet.

It is resistant to Alternaria stem canker.
