00785 - Ultimate Opener Hybrid Tomato
Solanum lycopersicum
Ultimate Opener VF

(VF)The best season-opening tomato in the world - the champion of earliness! Overcomes all of the typical short-comings of early maturing tomatoes. Who amongst us enjoys waiting a long time to harvest our first really luscious tasting, large, bright red, crack-free tomatoes from the garden? More often than not, the first fruit we pick from early varieties are under-sized, have little flavor, marginal color and too many blemishes. But we put up with it because we have no choice if we want tomatoes early in the season. Working with Dr. Paul Thomas, the same plant breeder who developed Better Boy and pioneered Early Girl hybrid tomatoes, Shumway is proud to introduce this hybrid creation. Just give it a try if earlier, high quality tomatoes are a dream that you'd like to see come true. Globe shaped fruits size up better than Early Girl (about 1/3 larger) and the flavor of this bright scarlet tomato is nothing short of marvelous . . . so sweet and juicy you can't stop eating them. The strong, vigorous indeterminate plants set fruits like mad and are capable of huge yields, ensured to a large degree by strong disease resistance, including VF. You're going to love this!
