Tomatoes


bush-goliath Bush Goliath Hybrid VFN 68 days. An amazing variety specially developed for patio gardeners and those with limited garden space. Its attractive, compact plants, up to 3½ ft. tall, have a 'patio' look - the surprise is their huge, red, 3 to 4" fruits packed with flavorful meat and high sugar content. Bears consistently up to frost, needs little staking.
early-goliath Early Goliath Hybrid 58 days. The same the superb size, perfect shape, continuous production, luscious flavor and broad disease resistance as Goliath. The bonus is its remarkable earliness - extend the Goliath growing season at the front end by a full week or more without sacrificing the things we love most about Goliath - extra-large harvests of big (8 oz.) red, sweet fruits that are deep oblate to globe-shaped. Without question, a better yielder than the other early varieties.
