Answer: Your best bet is to grow nematode-resistant varieties. The most nematode resistant variety I have ever grown, here<br>in the Jacksonville area, is 'Better Boy'. 'Celebrity' and 'Big Beef' are also resistant as is a paste tomato called 'Viva Italia Hybrid'. You will find these varieties listed on pages 89-90 in Burpee's 1998 catalog. If you don't have<br>a Burpee catalog call 1-800-888-1447 and they will send <br>you a catalog. Try not to plant your tomatoes in the same spot each year.<br>By rotating your tomatoes to a different spot you can <br>avoid having tomato diseases build up in the soil.
