Bonny Best Tomato (Heirloom, 72 Days)

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


Solanum lycopersicum


Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

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.

Bonnie best

As always it was a good experience. The wait for seeds was a little longer than previous years but only by a few days The seed germinated just fine and the tomato plants look great

Grew and produced well but most importantly it has a great old fashioned tart acidic tomato taste. If your tired of the hard tasteless or sweet modern hybrids, this tomato is for you.

Bonny Best Tomato

I am looking forward to trying this tomato. However, I have not had a chance to grow it yet, so I can't address my experience with it.

Oh, **** Yea

Delicious and everything I was hoping for. Exactly what the photo tries to tell you. They fit perfectly in the palm of my hand, perfect for tomato sammy's and don't grow like wildfire.
