At the end of August we planted four Top Gun tomatoes in five gallon buckets. My husband covers them when the night time temperature is predicted to be in the low 40s. If the predicted night time temperature is in the low 30s, he puts them in the shed. (Or if there is bad weather predicted such as a hurricane.) They have a wonderful creamy taste. It is the first of March and the plants are still blooming and producing tomatoes.

My husband bought some more plants for the spring. Hope they are as heat tolerant as they say they are.

From Seminis; touted as the best yielding and best tasting of the Tomato Spotted Wilt resistant cultivars Round red fruit average 7 - 8 ounces. Bred with the hot set gene to overcome the high temperatures of the deep south.(75 day). It is quite disease resistant and prolific. Flavor is on par with Amelia, much better than BHN 444.
