Tomato Beefsteak Determinate Tycoon 25 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
Back by popular demand, the Tycoon Tomato is now called the Texas Super Star Tomato as well as the San Antonio Rodeo Tomato for 2011! If you have never tried one, you will be amazed as these are the most flavorful tomatoes you will ever bite into.
It is on the list of Texas Super Star plants. ‘Tycoon’ is an exceptional large round tomato variety. The plant is determinate and is known for its heat setting ability as well as its resistance to tomato yellow leaf curl virus. This particular virus has become a major problem in the fall the past few years as the virus is transmitted by white flies which have become worse due to the serious drought conditions across most of the state. In addition the plant is resistant to Verticillium, Fursarium races one and two, tomato spotted wilt virus as well as nematodes. The fruit is firm and actually more oblate than round.
The Tycoon is a disease resistant hybrid determinate, which means it will do so much better than your other beefsteak tomatoes. The fruits will weigh over a half pound each so you've got plenty of good eating from each vine. This tomato is also heat resistant.
The seeds have been treated with TDMD which is standard.
Harvest in about 80 days. Germination rate is about 80% or better.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
