I have grown these tomatoes for two seasons now, and they are the best thing since sliced bread and mayo. They have sturdy vines and loads of round, beautiful tomatoes. Our garden is located in an old tobacco field and every year my tomato plants get wiped out by blight. Except now with Defiant, I have beautiful tomatoes. I kept fertilizing them and watering them until frost in late October and they were still producing tomatoes when the frost hit them. We have really hot summers here in NC and these tomatoes can withstand the heat as well. I will plant them again this year.

Nice, sturdy, tasty and reliable in Illinois (Northern)

We were wiped out by late blight our first year planting tomatoes. We were shocked that it took less than 3 days to lose everything. The following year we decided to grow only disease resistant. Defiant and Matts wild cherry were 2 of about 5 choices of plants. (year 2014 was our first planting of defiant) The very first time we planted defiants, we had a huge crop. We couldnt keep up with some 20 or so plants. Other varieties were skimpy, or cracked because of heat. We tried a lot of variteties, including cherokee purple, brandywine, others. Another interesting point is that whether or not its too went or too hot, the defiants always give us a crop. Defiants always came through and now we plant them every year, including this year (2017) and we are confident we will always have tomatoes. 2016 we were picking still in August. The tomato is really quite good, having a orange red color when ripe, oftentimes having streaks of orange on the shoulders. Matts Wild cherry are also very good and very reliable - and literally, they grow like a ****. We are trying Damsels this year and Caiman - both Late Blight resistant, just to experiment.

The best tomato EVER!

I live in a climate that is very hostile for tomato plants. Our area is very humid, lots of forest around and little morning sun in the garden. This is a breeding ground for disease and pests. Late blight and early blight are a given every year, just a matter of when they hit. I almost thought about giving up growing tomatoes and tried some resistant varieties including this one. This one by far was the best in terms of yield, disease resistance and flavor. Tomatoes are juicy and sweet with good acidity and tomato flavor. Plants only grow 3 feet high and are easy to manage. I get about 20 to 35 fruit on each plant. By the time these plants finally are overtaken with disease it is usually October which is totally fine with me. The are also pretty crack resistant. The are determinant so they stop producing flowers around end of August for me but they still provide an acceptable growing season in my opinion. I may start some at different times so they don't all come at once.
