The gourmet flavor of vine-ripened cluster tomatoes meets the large size and super disease resistance of beefsteaks in Big Bunch! Each of these perfect round globes weighs in at around 10 ounces -- enormous by cluster-tomato standards, and just right for every use from salads and sandwiches to canning and fresh slicing! You're going to love this ultra disease-resistant, easy to grow, scrumptious new tomato.
Big Bunch is indeterminate, so its robust vines keep bearing all season long. And such fruits! Each cluster contains 3 to 4 giant 10-ounce globes, perfectly red, very firm, and packed with juicy, sugary, meaty flavor. One slice makes a sandwich, and one cluster fills a canning jar and then some!
Part of Big Bunch's appeal comes from its superb disease resistance. This is a tough customer, unfazed by nematodes, spotted wilt virus, verticillium wilt, fusarium wilt races 1 and 2, and tobacco mosaic virus. The result is bigger crops, more vigorous growth, and a longer season of performance!
But the bulk of Big Bunch's irresistible charm comes from its flavor. There is a nice balance of solids and gels, sugars and "meatiness," plus that true homegrown tomato tang that no supermarket specimen can duplicate. These are fragrant, firm, bursting-with-goodness tomatoes, and chances are the first time you pick a ripened cluster, you'll just have to gobble one tomato down right there in the garden, before you even make it to the kitchen! That's when you know you've got a winner.
Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart.
