The Q&A Archives: Burpee Tomatoes

Question: Does Burpee have any new types of tomatoes coming out this year? I'm having tremendous success with the Delicious tomato from your company and am wondering if you have added any new brands similar to or better than the Delicious.

Answer: Burpee has several new tomatoes to choose from this season. 'Bush Early Girl' is a truly bush tomato with multiple disease resistance that bears in only 56 days. 'Ensalada' is a great new tomato perfect for salads. 'Medina' features large fruits on a determinate plant. 'Red October Hybrid' is a new tomato with a long shelf life combined with great taste, and 'Sweet Tangerine' is a gorgeous golden tomato with an incredibly sweet taste. If you are in the mood for cherry tomatoes, try 'Sugar Snack', a deliciously sweet new offering that is disease resistant and bears for quite some time. Check out all these and more in Burpee's 1998 catalog. Don't have one? Simply revisit the website and request one!
