Bella Rosa and DIXIE! Red tomato seed

Recommended Posts

has arrived. Those two will be my main tomatoes from this point onward, with a few big beef and celebrities, to boot. Those two are produce more big tomatoes than anyone around here can believe. I will be able to plant fewer tomatoes next season. They produce massive amounts tomatoes in about a 2-3 week period and then they are done, then I can pick the celebrities and big beef in smaller amounts. These Bella Rosa's have handled the heat something great, as did the DR's. I hate to throw dirt at the big beefs because they are a fine tomato, but the BR's are something else

That's great Champ. So I take it the BRs  and Dixie Reds are over and done with since determinate -  I do wish  they would keep blooming to a lesser degree.  I  would  love to raise the Dixies especially with such a pretty name . 🙂 .  and my puppy's name is DIXIE too.  ha. I need my tomato crop spread out over a long time period though so guess I need to stick with indeterminate.

They are still producing, but winding down. They have been on a tear for about 3 weeks now

I must agree with Champ. Bella Rosa and Dixie Red's are the way to go. We had 38 Bella Rosa plants in the garden. We picked well over 400+ lbs of maters off these plants.

Champs, I'll try the Dixie Red next year.   I have grown Bella Rosa and you are right, they are great.

I'll go with my Better Boys and those other two as well.

Looking forward to starting/building my new greenhouse and want to try a few tomatoes in buckets as well.   I will try those 3 and see if they can handle the plastic.
