Days to Maturity: 70 days

70 days from setting out transplants. Determinate. Biltmore Hybrid is a terrific large Tomato for canning, juicing, or eating fresh. It arises very heavily on plants that set their entire harvest at once, so you can pick and can your Tomato crop easily and efficiently.These fruits are deep red, very smooth, and heavy. They have no problems with green shoulders, and tend to be quite uniform in size and flavor. The terrific disease resistance of Biltmore Hybrid -- Alternaria Stem Canker, Verticillium Wilt races 1 and 2, Fusarium Wilt, and Gray Leaf Spot -- means even bigger yields, too!Even the harvesting process is simplified with this fine Tomato. The stems are jointed, making picking much easier and quicker. If you can a big crop of Tomatoes or are pressed for time in the garden (and aren't we all?), Biltmore is a fine choice for you.Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart. Pkt is 20 seeds.

    • I live in CentraL FL and it has grown well inside a open screened cage attached to my house. It is very good with disease resistance so far but I don't know about bug issues because it is protected from most bugs. The biggest problem I have had is the tendency to get big cracks due to the heavy rains in June. The tomatoes are delicious with a little salt but the plant doesn't set a lot of fruit and it takes awhile to ripen - I had lots of Celebritys much quicker. Note: I planted these in a 10 inch raised bed on concrete.
