The celebrity tomato is an All American Selection (AAS) winner variety of the tomato plant. It has more disease resistance than just about any other cultivar and is considered the standard for hybrid tomatoes. It’s highly adaptable and almost entirely maintenance-free. Qualities that enable it to thrive in a wide range of conditions and make it a favorite among tomato growers.
These semi-determinate plants are exceptionally strong, bearing masses of smooth, round, bright red tomatoes. Weighing about 8 ounces, they're very uniform (no green shoulders here) and resistant to cracking.
The cultivar was developed at Seminis Vegetable Seeds by Colen Wyatt. One of the most successful plant breeders of the 20th century. My dad, Jim Waltrip worked with Colen and named the Celebrity tomato.
