Early Darling Hybrid Tomato

Earliest, large-fruited tomato!

  • Extra-early variety
  • 3-4 oz., brilliant red fruits
  • Very flavorful fruits
  • High crack resistance
  • Determinate plants
New variety raises the bar on early season tomatoes! Early Darling Hybrid Tomato's brilliant red, 3-4 oz. fruits are some of the best-tasting, flavorful, extra-early tomatoes we've tried. With high crack resistance, the fruit quality is superb. Determinate plants bear very heavy yields before summer diseases set in-so you'll have plenty of tomatoes for slicing and salads as well as processing. The compact, bushy plants grow 4 ft. tall and are easy to fit into smaller garden spaces and raised beds. Early Darling is also a good choice for container gardening too. 55-60 DAYS.
