General Description

Garden tomatoes are short-lived perennials usually grown as an annual crop plant for its fruit. They are among the easiest to grow and most prolific of edible garden plants. There are many varieties of tomatoes and they grow in two distinct forms -- those that are more bush-like and require little to no training, staking, or trellising, and those that are more vine-like and require training or trellising, but will produce more fruit over a longer period of time. Super Fantastic hybrid tomato produces high yields of solid, meaty, flavorful, midseason tomatoes on vigorous vines and will continue producing until frost. This hybrid has excellent disease resistance and does best in full sun, warm nights and with good fertilization and consistent watering.
