Bonny Best Tomato

The famous old canning tomato that was selected out of Chalk's Early Jewel by one George W. Middleton and introduced in 1908 by Walter P. Stokes seed house. It became one of the most respected canning varieties in America in the first half of the twentieth century. Medium-sized fruit are round, red, meaty and loaded with flavor. A good producer that makes a fine slicer too. Becoming hard to find due to modern, flavorless hybrids.

Review:

Spring of '16 was my first attempt at sowing directly into the ground, or from seed. This was the only tomato plant (from seed) I got to grow or produce, and produce it did. This thing was prolific! I had to use 4 stakes! It produced tomato's right into an unseasonably warm November, in NE Kansas. I would defiantly recommend. Tomato's were delicious.

What are the pros? Early fruit

What are the cons? Died off early, bugs like them

Review:

My three plants acted just like a determinant. They produced a harvest then died off, with the few remaining tomatoes ripening on dead vines. Is this a determinate variety? The harvest was minimal and the tomato-sucking beetles loved them more than I did so I let them go at it, spraying them with a homemade spray as I saw them. So these plants kinda turned into a bug trap! hah! The tomatoes were of medium size and weren't that flavorful. Will not be growing again.

What are the cons? splitting, spider mites

Review:

OK, I'm a newbie at vegetable gardening. For many years, I've been able to grow blooming things with much success. I just water, fertilize, provide sun, and i have healthy blooming beautiful plants. NOT so with growing vegetables! This is my first year to grow vegetables. Maybe I've watered inconsistently or not enough, but 95% of all my Bonnie Best tomatoes are cracking. As soon as the first blush appears, they crack down the sides. We have been having weird weather this year, in that twice, we've had a long hot sunny spell, followed by cool very wet spells. However, my other 2 varieties of tomatoes, Riesentraube and Illini, are not cracking as much as my Bonnies. Probably only 10% of my Illini tomatoes have cracked, and about 20% of my Riesentraube. Not only that, I have a bad spider mite infestation, only on the Bonnies, not my other 2 types of tomatoes. I'm pulling them and trashing them tomorrow, whent his extreme heat abates, to prevent mites from spreading.
