The Q&A Archives: Nematode-Resistant Tomato Varieties

Question: I want to order different types of tomato seeds--indeterminate and also determinate. I have discovered I have nematodes in my land. Can you suggest some varieties?<br>

Answer: The most nematode resistant variety I have ever grown, here<br>in the Jacksonville area, is 'Better Boy'(indeterminate). 'Celebrity' (determinate) and 'Big Beef' (indeterminate) are also resistant as is a paste tomato called 'Viva Italia Hybrid' (determinate). 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. <br><br>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.<br>
