Invincible Tomato is a hybrid, determinate tomato variety with exceptional fruit set in hot conditions. This is a Roma or paste-type tomato that produces smooth and uniform fruits averaging 3.5 ounces. The fruits have a deep red color and excellent flavor, making this the perfect choice for canning and making sauces.
Invincible Tomato produces compact, determinate plants that are resistant to many common tomato diseases including tomato mosaic virus, late blight, and gray leaf spot. The vigorous plants produce a significant amount of foliage that helps to shade the fruits and protect from sun scald. The ability to set fruit in heat makes it a great option for a second succession planting in late spring or early summer.
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 bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.
If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be "stepped-up" to 4" pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

We put a few of these plants in late in the season. They withstood the South Carolina August heat (with shade cloth) and the October cold. In early November, we picked the last of them. It's now January 17th and we just finished up our last Invincible tomato. Ordering more and planting a full bed of them this year.
It's Nov. 15 and I still have Invincible tomato's on the vine, planted them back in the early spring. A great eating tomato.
Grew this variety for the first time this 2023 season. I was drawn to the description. The plants grew well and set alot of fruit. However, I just canned my first batch of tomatoes and I would say half of each tomato was all seed contents. I never had luck growing paste tomatoes in the past due to lack of fruit or the plants dying, but I was under the impression that paste tomatoes did not have alot of seeds.
It seems to survive when others have failed. Growing in 94%silica amending with 46, 61, 60 it almost kills me to grow on this Florida island. I am jealous of your real soil/dirt.
