Description

Be sure to check out our Tomato Growing Guide for tips & tricks on being successful in growing tomatoes at home.

One of the truly great characteristics of the Hossinator (STM2255), though, is that despite being a hybrid, it has the amazing vine-ripe acidic flavor of an heirloom tomato that is difficult to find today. The Hossinator (STM2255) has a medium growth height and produces impressively large fruits that average 8oz - 12oz each with no pruning needed. However, this variety can benefit from pruning to grow truly massive, award-winning tomatoes. If you want to grow huge tomatoes, simply prune suckers from the bottom of the plant up to the 4th limb. Pelleted.

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at the bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable Seeds. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

I've been in search of a Big Juicy Tasty Tomato, that Doesn't grow real Tall, that can Produce Heavy yields of Tomatoes, and that are resistant to A LOT of the Diseases that accumulate on Tomato Plants here in Georgia s Humid Climate. This one achieved ALL that and surpassed my expectations.
I have finally found my Favorite Tomato Plant. Thanks Hoss.

Poor germination

I started 8 varieties of tomato plants this year(2024) and had excellent germination on all but this variety. I had zero germination with Hossinator tomato. Just be aware.
