Product Overview

Our Bonnie Big Boy delivers a big, sandwich-type slicer with bright red fruit and classic tomato flavor. It bears heavily in mid-season, yet the indeterminate vines continue fruiting until frost. Long vines need staking, or grow the plant in a tall cage. Smooth-skinned fruits are resistant to cracking. Plant arrives in a biodegradable pot with a well-established root system and hardened off for easy transplanting in the garden.
  • Our bonnie trial gardens report this consistently produces 10 oz. - 16 oz. fruits, sometimes over 1 lb.
  • Perfect for slicers
  • Plant spacing: 36 in. apart in conventional rows, 24 to 30 in. intensive gardens or 1 plant per 18 in. - 24 in. container
  • Ships in a 4 in. plant-able, biodegradable pot by jiffy

Customer Reviews

4.5 in. Big Boy Tomato is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real trooper I live in the south and this year was just awful for heat and high humidity. This was the first year I grew this variety. The plant itself grew bigger than any other variety we ever planted. Even after it began to succumb to the fungi that proliferate in those conditions, we had a continuous crop of large, juicy tomatoes. Tomato sandwiches and homemade sauce are the yearly driving force around here, however, I was able to steal a few for some delicious fried green tomatoes, because we had more than enough clusters! If you can get your hands on some real compost and/or manure, I think it would be hard to fail. with this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dud I planted four different Bonnie tomato plants side by side, all using the same miracle grow potting soil, the other three produced an average of 15 tomatoes each, not much, but the Big Boy produced zero, not even a flower. All grew about same speed and height. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from big as in tall these plants do get 6' tall and bear a lot of tomatoes,40/50 each plant. be sure to stake them really high with metal stakes that wont bend/with the wind and all the fruit. i've had a couple blow over last year because I used wood stakes

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Scrawny little plant, barely rooted and poorly packed The two Bonnie Plants Big Boy tomatoes I received were barely rooted in over-soaked peat pots and very loose media. Both barely had a single small tap root started and those were damaged by the splintered bamboo rod that was haphazardly stuck through each plant and pot bottom. Add to this a tight plastic bag around each plant, glued to the bottom of an oversized box that was stuffed with packing peanuts - it took about an hour to carefully unpack them. Then, I planted them carefully in the patio pots I had prepared (the way have always successfully done in previous years), watered them and spent the next day watching them rapidly wilt , turn white, and die. I will never buy Bonnie Plant tomatoes online from HD again. Pure waste of time and money. Unacceptable plants and some of the worst packing ever seen - and no way to complain or get a refund. I definitely do not recommend online Bonnie tomatoes!
