The Q&A Archives: Big Early Tomato

Question: What happened to the variety that Burpees use to sell called "Big Early" tomato plant?

Answer: Hybridizers work overtime to bring gardeners new and improved varieties of vegetables. Probably the best traits of the "Big Early" tomato were extracted and, along with the best traits of another tomato, a new variety was produced. You'll probably be happy with Burpee's "Medina" tomato. 3 1/2 inch fruits mature in just 60 days on Medina.
