In the seven weeks this plant has been producing ripe tomatoes it has yield 198 lbs. for four plants. Tomatoes are 3-4 inches in dia., very flavorful, very meaty. One tomato did not have any seeds at all. All were disease free, but so were the other eight varieties. Which could just be the year, but no other variety came even close to the yield per plant. If someone knows of a better tomato, want to hear about it, but until then this is the very best, unbelievable, really, tomato known

I have enjoyed seeing this plant put out tomato after tomato. Medium sized fruit with a lot of uses. This will be part of my garden next year.

This is my first year of growing Super Fantastic. It was a choice I made after years of Celebrity, Early Girl and Better Boy. The fruits are not necessarily big as tomatoes go, but the quantity is overwhelming! Each plant is producing enormous numbers of tomatoes; more than any other variety I've grown. All my plants were late this year due to a cold and wet spring, therefore a late harvest. Our abnormally dry summer hasn't helped either. In spite of adversity this tomato has performed remarkably well!

Super Fantastic is rather popular here in Northern New Mexico and I have grown it off and on for years. It is a large, tasty and tough plant in our environment where wind and viral disease are the worst problems. Super Fantastic generally does better than any other varieties except Sungold and a Supersweet 100 which are cherry tomatoes.
Recently I have been experimenting with heirlooms and do love their flavor but Super Fantastic seems to beat them for disease resistance.

Planted in both greenhouse and outside, 6' stake, go on the 'heavy' fertilizer side, I use 16-16-16 GP and the Ph still stays right at 7. 1gal water per plant 2x per week after blossoms set. Fruit is 8-10oz sweet and juicy good for salad, BLT, canning (salsa!) or drying. This is my 2nd year for these, will plant again next year. Whidbey Isle, WA, Zone 8.
