  • Sale
  • Regular price $2.29


Determinate. Big, meaty fruit on extra-early compact plants.

Container Grower! The classic Burpee’s Big Boy has been made better, especially for small-space gardeners. You get the same number of tasty, big red tomatoes (10 to 11 oz. each), with the same sweet, aromatic, melt-in-your-mouth juiciness as the original. But the compact plants are only half the size!

Usage: Fresh salad, fresh, slicing, canning. Fruit Weight: 10-11 oz.

Determinate tomatoes are varieties that grow to a fixed mature size and ripen all their fruit in a short period, usually about 2 weeks. Determinate tomato varieties are often referred to as “bush” tomatoes because they do not continue growing in length throughout the growing season.

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