Gardeners' Notes:

Central Phoenix -- Baxter's Bush tomato does quite well in my garden, when many other tomato varieties do not. It takes the summer heat well, surviving into fall about half the time. If it survives summer, and if winter is mild, it overwinters and produces well about January-March.

Positive riceke On Feb 8, 2010, riceke from Snellville, GA (Zone 7b) wrote:

Grew one plant in a 5 gal size container. Hi production of 1-11/2" diameter bright red fruit. Mid-season ripening. Plant reached 4' height in cage, could be larger in-ground. Very good taste sweet-tart typical tomato flavor. Fairly resistant to disease in this climate. Production lasted into fall. I would plant this variety again.
