Big, juicy, crack-resistant tomatoes finish sooner, even in cloudy weather
Days to Maturity: 69 from transplant
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 2? feet apart.
