Its combination of a strong, healthy vine and exceptionally firm and smooth fruit can give growers a high yield potential. Fruit are mostly extra-large in size, uniformly green with jointed pedicels and can weigh up to 12 ounces. High resistance to alternaria stem canker, fusarium wilt races 1 and 2, gray leaf spot, and verticillium wilt race 1
Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination
Determinate types are relatively small and often referred to as bushy or compact. Each short branch ends in a flower cluster and the plant does most of its growing before any fruit are set. The tomatoes tend to ripen at once, usually over a short 2 to 3 week period. After most of the tomatoes are harvested the plant yellows and additional production is limited. If grown upright, the plants are seldom more than 2 - 3 feet tall.
