Not the best for Central TX
Reviewed By: W (College Station, TX)
Tried these two seasons now - similar results. Started indoors and transplanted in spring. Vigorous plant produces only a few tomatoes compared to the bushels of Celebrity and Better Boy varieties. I agree with the others that this isn't the best variety for our TX climate/growing seasons.

Early Girls in Texas
Reviewed By: Danye (Dallas, TX)
This particular type if tomato happened to take a while to grow. I planted the sprouted seedlings in late April. They have been productive for the past month. Note of importance: They are very tasty when vine ripened. I have allowed to ripen on and off the vine.

Not for Texas
Reviewed By: Andrew Cook (Georgetown, Texas)
This may be a great plant for cooler climates but does not perform well in the hot summers of Texas. If you live in the south I would recommend more heat tolerant varieties such as beefsteak or mortgage lifter.

Good Dependable
Reviewed By: Sue s (Blue Point, NY)
I tried several tomato plants, Early Girl, Brandywine Black Krim Honey Bells cherry. Early Girl set several tomatoes in June, stopped for a while in July heat, started up again to produce well, neatly, compact plants. The others got so tall & then set a few huge plants that made staking difficult. Early Girl did the best overall, cooking, growing, staking

I have tried these tomatoes as they ripen early, but you loose the taste. I recommend Brandywine. I start them indoors in yogurt cups and they ripen by end of August...they taste amazing

WOW what a producer
Reviewed By: Jeff (Humboldt, TN)
I purchased 3 to 4 tomato plants from our local carrier and everyone of them did not produce a thing. I purchased these seeds and decide to give it another try. I planted these around mid July enough for 2 plants. Man oh Man I have tomato's running out my ears and they are still producing. I have eat them and frozen them. Will plant more next year and if these produce this great can' wait to see how the Gurney's Burgermaster VFFNT do!!!

great salad tomato
Reviewed By: Anthony (Davison, Michigan)
This is the verr best salad Tomato ever... Needs early pruning for greater established root systems and less plant and more tomatoes.... Finest flavor with organic tomato fertilizer at intervals.... Plant deep in a small mound and mulch with landscape fabric. They don't like it wet better yield with dry soil for increased reproductivity.I used the tomato sray kit from gardens alive and Everyone loves!!!!! these tomatoes.

Nice Quality! Very Vigorous!
Reviewed By: Danny Grogg (Aloha, Oregon)
This was a excellent tomato with vigor, taste, and reliability. A great slicer too! I would rate it 5 Stars but the plant wasn't very sturdy. That was the only problem though. Other than that, I would recommend it!
