Big Boy Hybrid
If you ask anybody to name a Tomato, chances are this is the one they will mention- and for very good reason. One of the oldest continually produced hybrids, Big Boy never goes out of style. Since 1948, people have planted Big Boy for its dependable production of huge, bright red beefsteak style fruit. I have sold Big Boy for years. It is one of those "must haves" when you work in the greenhouse biz. Honestly, I was tired of growing and selling the plants. Same thing, year after year. I remember thinking as I watched customers walking away with their beloved Big Boys "Cant you try ANYTHING different?". Recently, we did a massive grow out of all our varieties. Grudgingly I planted Big Boy along with all the others. About all I have to say is I am ashamed of how I felt about Big Boy. Pretty much Big Boy punched me in the mouth for talking dirt about him. Man, what a great, huge Tomato.
