Deepest red flesh of all varieties with the heat set gene, bred to flourish in very hot weather! The crimson gene imparts both deeper red flesh and gel color. Gardeners will love its robust, sweet, ‘real tomato’ flavor and its lovely, deeply oblate, 10-oz. fruits. Excellent disease resistance generates big yields. A main season, beefsteak-type, 8 to 10 ounce tomato with excellent heat set ability. Due to the presence of the crimson gene, large, flattened fruits have higher lycopene and deep red flesh and gel color. Vigorous plants have a high yield potential of quality fruits over a long growing period. Determinate.
Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover, or simply bring the container indoors. Determinates can be spaced 18-24 inches apart. Tomatoes can be buried up to the top 2 sets of leaves.
