Box Car Willie is an old prolific heirloom variety and is the best producer of red, smooth 10-16 oz. fruits. Don't be thrown by the name because you won't believe the incredible taste. Old fashioned, acidic flavor with high yields for an heirloom tomato makes this a great variety for an all purpose kitchen tomato. It is delicious sliced on a sandwich! 80 days.
Watch the video below for helpful tips on how to plant and care for your tomatoes
Growing Tomatoes requires a few basic things for success:
·Planting after your last frost date in Spring
·Good Soil, with enough room for each plant to
grow, weed free
·6+ hours of sunlight
·At least 1” of rain per week or supplemental
watering to achieve the same amount.
·Organic Vegetable Fertilizer blended for
Tomatoes, with calcium included, used as directed.
·Strong Supports for the plants to grow on.
·Proper pH level from 5.5-6.2
·Daytime temperatures from 70-85, Nighttime
temperatures 55-71 degrees for flowers to form fruit
These are absolutely huge. They are also pretty tasty. They aren't as prolific a producer as some of our other plants, but since they are so big, I guess we don't need as many of them. Great for slicing with a little sea salt and olive oil.
Great for sandwiches, October 11, 2016 By Bill
I've been planting this tomato for a couple of years and have found it great for sandwiches. Really tasty, full of meat and starts bearing when the early ones stop.
