Vigorous 4-5' tall plants produce good yields of green shouldered, slightly flattened, 6-8 oz red, firm and flavorful, jointed (comes off the plant with a piece of stem attached) fruits. Crack resistant. Developed especially for mountain regions and higher elevations areas but is adaptable for most climates. Can be left unsupported, staked or caged. Excellent choice for Home Gardens and Market Growers.
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.
