The best for hot climates

Days to Maturity: 85 from transplant

Determinate

Perfect for hot climates. Big, deep red 11-ounce tomatoes, fat and juicy, arise in great numbers on this vigorous plant. Unbeatable disease resistance means huge yields every time.

Dixie Red is resistant to spotted wilt virus, anthracnose, fusarium race 3, verticillium wilt, and stemphyllium—in short, nearly everything you might encounter. Very easy to grow even for first-time tomato growers, Dixie Red sets bright red, juicy, simply delectable fruit. It will quickly become your favorite.

Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.
