How to Grow Better Boy Tomatoes

"Better Boy" tomatoes are smooth and deep red.


Get to know the Better Boy Tomato a little bit better: size, days to maturity, color, season, type, disease resistance.


Tomatoes! If you are about to grow your tomato plants in the ground, look for varieties that have the acronym "VFN" which stand for verticillium wilt, fusarium and nematodes. Many hybrid tomatoes like Better Boy and Champion are resistant to VFN. Nematodes are tiny worm-like creatures. Fusarium and verticillium will cause leaves to curl and wilt, stunting the plant. Old heirloom tomatoes are not resistant to VFN. But if you plant in a container with clean potting soil, no problem.


My growers started seeds in the green house December 17. I've got the plants and they have bloomed. I will have garden fresh tomatoes in30 days. Amazing and thanks Scott!
