Product Overview

Our Bonnie Better Bush Tomato plant bears sizeable fruits on a very compact, determinate plant. It works well in containers and small gardens. Especially strong, bushy plants produce medium-sized tomatoes great for sandwiches and slicing. The heavy foliage of this hybrid helps protect tomatoes from sunburn. In our Alabama test garden, plants can produce from 90 to 120 tomatoes each over a two-month harvest period. Plants are strong and upright, but will still do best in a small cage or on a stake for support. Plant arrives in a biodegradable pot with a well-established root system and hardened off for easy transplanting in the garden.
  • Strong, robust plants bear tasty 8 oz. fruits
  • Work well in containers or small gardens
  • Plant spacing: 36 in. apart in conventional rows, 24 to 30 in. intensive gardens or 1 plant per 18 in. - 24 in. container
  • Resistant to verticillium wilt (V), fusarium wilt (F) and nematodes (N)

Customer Reviews

4.5 in. Better Bush Tomato is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy stem and beautiful blloms and fruit I love this variety for it's hardiness and delicious, abundant yeild. I recommend removing the sucker leaves to grow a taller, more productive plant. The sucker leaves are found in the crook between the stalk and limbs. Removing these allows the nutrients in the soil to enrich the stalk for a taller plant, which translates to more lims and a higher yeild. I normally remove the sucker leaves until the plant is about 3 feet high, then allow them to grow, and this method has worked well on all of my tomatoes for 35+ years. Good luck!
