Named for the singer Boxcar Willie of the Grand Ole Opry, who's real name was Lecil Travis Martin. 

Boxcar Willie is a slightly flattened New Jersey tomato variety by Joe Bratka's father. Regular-leaf, tall, vigorous, tomato plants that yield abundant crops of 10 to 16-ounce, smooth, bright-orange/red slicer tomatoes with distinctly delicious well-balanced, rich, sweet that have sufficient acid to push the flavors forward and guarantee this variety as a good choice for a canning tomato, sauce tomato or salad tomato or perfect for tomato juice. A good all-season tomato that produces well until frost. Good resistance to disease and cracking.

Indeterminate tomatoes will keep growing and will produce fruit until they are killed by frost in the fall. This type of tomatoes will bloom, set new fruit and ripen fruit throughout the entire growing season so you will have a longer time to harvest.

Suggestions: To keep fruit clean and easier to pick, support with stakes or cages. Tomatoes require at least an inch of water per week.
