And the winner is

Tomato Polbig & Defiant  “Polbig!”  Yes, for the 4th year, the hands-down best full-sized early tomato is “Polbig.”  The first to ripen was a beautiful 10.5 oz perfect tomato.  It’s on the right in the photo, shown with the ripest of the contender for 2019, “Defiant,” which currently weighs a mere 5 oz.  That beautiful “Polbig” became our first BLT of the season, much later than normal, but after the year we’re having we feel blessed to have any tomatoes.Tomato Polbig  The “Polbig” plants are performing great, with clusters of big (some in this photo are already 12 oz!) tomatoes in varying stages of ripeness.  I counted 12 on this plant alone.  This is a variety for a big, early then done crop, which I like because when they come out, other crops can take their place for the fall garden.  So, if you are looking for an outstanding, reliable even in cold, overly wet, little sunshine weather like we’ve had this year (and remember it won the last three years when one was hot and dry early, and one was even a bit colder) then your search is over.  Get “Polbig!”
