The Q&A Archives: Disease-resistant Tomatoes

Question: I keep forgetting - what are your most disease-resistant tomatoes (with as many V's, F's & Nt's as possible)? I know Celebrity, Better Boy and Big Beef are pretty resistant; any others? Are there any particularly disease-resistant heirloom tomatoes?

Answer: Brandywine and Quarter Century are both heirlooms with great resistance to disease. Tomato varieties known to be resistant to verticillium and fusarium wilts and root-knot nematodes include Better Boy, Big Set, Small Fry (cherry tomato), Toy Boy and Wonderboy. Hope you have a bountiful harvest!
