I am really impressed with this plant the tomatoes look beautiful I have not had a ripe one yet but the plants are impressive and seem to hold up well in the Florida heat. I had a really hard time getting the seeds to germinate out of an entire pack of seeds I only got 4 plants.

Tropic Boy is an outstanding hybrid medium size tomato developed by Takii Seed company in Japan. This variety has a good adaptability to tropic conditions, suitable for growing in open field under temperate and warm climates. This Indereminate type plant with large leaves grows vigorously and produces fruits earlier than other varieties. Red fruits are in oblate shape and 220 grams in weight. The plant bears 5-6 fruits per cluster and are very productive. The fruit has 6-7 loculus, firm meat and tought skin, which is crack free with long shelf life, good for long distance shipping. Plants are strongly resistant to attacks from many diseases. Excellent variety for home gardening and commercial growing.
