Park's Whopper CR Improved Hybrid Tomato Seeds

Select Item


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

Days to Maturity: 65 from transplant


The original Whopper was an American classic, and its successor is simply the home gardener's dream tomato: greater disease resistance, higher yields, a longer season, and better taste.

These big, juicy, crack-resistant tomatoes, 4 inches or more across, ripen uniformly (even when the weather is overcast) and finish 5 days sooner than the old Whopper. Then they keep right on coming in huge quantities until frost—none of your smaller, greener end-of-season fruits here.

And because they're meatier, you get even more succulent tomato flavor in every slice. Park's Whopper has been a taste test favorite for many years, and you will love the rich, succulent bite you get from every fruit.

Resistant to verticillium wilt, root-knot nematodes, tobacco mosaic virus, and 2 strains of Fusarium wilt, Park's Whopper is a great choice for beginning gardeners and seasoned pros alike. Find out what all the fuss is about—grow the tomato that American gardeners have been in love with for decades.

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°F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.

These are the most perfect tomatoes I have ever grown, and I have grown tomatoes for over 25 years. They are large, blemish free, and have the best taste ever. These have become my favorite tomatoes and I grow them spring and fall. I highly recommend them to other tomato lovers!

Perfect tomato

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I’m a avid grower of many plants but I really enjoy the tomato plant!! I’ve been growing from seed to harvest for about 8 years. I started with just the bio dome seed starter kits and done pretty fair with local chain store brands of tomato seeds (big boy was my preference). I was turned on to Park Seed company about 5 years ago by a friend. He had gave me several buckets of tomatoes due to my harvest wasn’t as good as expected. I liked the fact that the plant was 5/6 foot tall, nice stalk and beautiful fruit!! They ranged from the size of a tennis ball to the size of a soft ball; the skin was really thin, the fruit was very beefy inside and didn’t have a lot of seeds. My friend told me they were perfect for everything!! And boy was he right! We made juice and canned tomatoes with what my friend had gave me and it all was amazing. Very little water after the juice settled ( 5%water ) and the taste was amazing! So the following year I ordered the CR Whopper hybrid tomato seeds and haven’t looked back!! I now have a grow tent that I can start 164 seeds at once and a smaller tent for them to grow until they go outside. I just planted the seeds on 2/24/22 in a grow medium that I put together and also used the CowPots that Parks has available (more amazing products) and on 3/1/22 they started sprouting!! I also have a 1000 watt full spectrum grow light in the tent as well that keeps the temperature at 75/80 degrees at all times. I’ve grown these plants for a few years now and have never been let down by the yield produced by these plants. I also grow several of the other Whopper pepper plants and they are also amazing!! Would I recommend this product? Yes! Will I buy this product again? Absolutely!! And by the way, you always get more seeds than the quantity on the package says. Another plus!! Something I forgot to mention is that I’ve always had a 95/97% germination rate on all Parks products I’ve grown!! Just an amazing company!!

If I had to limit myself to only one variety, it would be this one. I think it's the best all around tomato for dependability in performance, size, and flavor.
