About Tomato Seeds - Better Boy

Lycopersicon esculentum

Seed Type Hybrid Seed
Plant Type Indeterminate

A beloved choice among hybrid indeterminate tomato varieties is the renowned Better Boy Tomato. True to its reputation, Better Boy Tomato delivers an exceptional eating experience with its juicy, crisp texture and bursting flavor that embodies the classic taste of tomatoes. Our Better Boy variety is known for its impressive yield, producing large, one-pound fruits in the middle of the growing season, typically around 70 to 75 days after planting. Its dense foliage provides natural protection for the fruits, shielding them from excessive sun exposure and preventing sunscald. Due to its vigorous growth, Better Boy Tomato requires proper support through staking or caging as it can reach significant sizes.
