Supersonic was a super star in my garden this year. The fruits were large and flavorful. Production was excellent. There was very little cracking. I liked it better than Jet Star and Ramapo.

A tasty, prolific, small red tomato. I like it much better than the early girl and whatever boy tomatoes grown from plants from the grocery store. I am a new veggie gardener with a small garden, so I haven't grown many varieties, yet.

A 1968 hybrid from Harris. This cultivar is a large indeterminate plant which yields a heavy crop of 8- 10 ounce tomatoes. Flavor is good for a round red. I personally prefer Fantastic in this niche.
