For a mainstream production variety, I'm thinking about growing Park's Beefy Boy this year. Taking seed catalogs with a grain of salt, they claim it has all the qualities I usually enjoy with Big Beef - and I'd like to try a different variety.
Beefy Boy is an indeterminate hybrid with a lot of disease resistance, reportedly has good flavor, very productive, ripens early to mid-season, and is large, red, and solid. It has "short internodes" - a term I've never seen before. I assume nodes are the truss-branches that bear blossoms and tomatoes, and if the distance between those is short then it stands to reason that a plant would produce more tomatoes. Is that right?
Has anyone here grown Beefy Boy? PlantFiles doesn't have much about it, but the customer reviews on the Park's website are good.
