BONNY BEST TOMATO (72 days) - Pinetree Garden Seeds - Vegetables



Indeterminate. An old time variety also known as John Baer. A full, pleasantly acid flavor keeps gardeners growing this reliable variety. Fruits are round and flattened and are under 8 ounces apiece. Producing especially well in Northern areas where it is one of the first to ripen. 25 seeds.


Indoors - 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4" deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36" apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest - When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips - Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.
