Description

Big, juicy, crack-resistant tomatoes finish sooner, even in cloudy weather

Days to Maturity: 69 from transplant

Determinate

The name says it all on this one, but you won't really believe the deliciousness of Big Yummy until you pull one off the plant in your own garden and take a bite. Selected for flavor, flavor, and flavor, this nearly seedless variety manages to offer both sugary sweetness and a high acid content, giving you that rich tomato tang that so many modern varieties lack. You're going to absolutely love it.

Big Yummy produces deep red, smooth fruits weighing in at 8 to 10 ounces on average. This is a great all-purpose size, ideal for slicing, canning, freezing, and saucing. The plant habit is determinate, meaning that it sets its entire crop within just a few weeks, instead of bearing small amounts continuously all season. This is ideal if you like to can or freeze your crop, because you can do it all at once. (Of course, you can also create a longer season of fruiting by staggering the times at which you sow your Big Yummy seed and transplant the seedlings into the garden. Try it every 2 weeks for a really long season of production.)

This fruit is smooth, unblemished, with no green shoulders and a combination of sweet, succulent, sharp, and acidic flavors throughout. It is meaty yet juicy, with a good balance of solids and gels. Once you've tasted this tomato, you may be spoiled—it's hard to go back to those bland, rock-hard supermarket types after Big Yummy enters the scene.

Big Yummy is a hybrid with superb disease resistance, making it a great choice for first-time gardeners as well as those who have had problems growing tomatoes in the past. This superlative tomato is resistant to alternaria stem canker, Fusarium wilt 1, gray leaf spot, tomato spotted wilt, and tomato yellow leaf curl.

Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. 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. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.

Best Tasting Tomatoes

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

A local nursery introduced me to this variety several years ago. I have tried hundreds of varieties from all over the World. These are absolutely the best tasting tomatoes I've ever grown! They are prolific, perfectly shaped and perfectly smooth. All of my neighbors are now hooked and look forward to me growing them for all of them. Great for canning too! Hardy for short summers here in Central Utah.

Beautiful but lacking.

This shopper rated the product 3 out of 5 stars

Gorgeous looking tomatoes, but the flavor and texture lacked the intensity I was expecting from other reviews. I won't grow these again when there are others more flavorful. They weren't BAD, mind you, but they just didn't have the pizzazz I have found in other varieties in times past.

Sturdy Plant, Huge Fruit

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I grew several different determinate and indeterminate tomatoes this season, and Big Yummy is one of my favorites. Thick vines on compact plants actually stayed (mostly) contained in a standard tomato cage (although I had to stake it at the end because the weight of the fruit was causing the cage to lean), and the fruit was huge and delicious, Held out against blight for a long time; a little trimming here and there through the season kept that under control until the last of the tomatoes were ready to harvest.

Great success

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

First time with this variety. I am getting excellent results with all the plants. Tomatoes are large, firm, and tasty. Terrific for canning and better eating fresh
