Roadster Tomato is a hybrid, determinate tomato variety known for its color and exceptional flavor.

It has an excellent disease-resistance package including resistance to tomato spotted wilt virus and gray leaf spot.

Roadster Tomato has determinate plants that are vigorous with a medium height compared to other determinate varieties. Plants have a concentrated fruit set for large harvests of large to jumbo tomatoes. Fruits have a scarlet red exterior, a deep red interior, and a superb flavor!

Growing Information

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.

These were just okay. Not near as good as Bella Rosa, or Red Snapper and or Big Beef. I also grew a Mountain Rouge that was better. Not bad, just nothing that makes me give them anything better than three stars. They started out a 2 star tomato, slow to show my much but finished at 3 1/2 stars. Not growing again because I have better performers
