Better boy tomatoes?

uscjustoMay 14, 2013

I transplanted a tomato seedling which was labelled "heirloom and F1 combo- Better Boy" by Rocket Farms and it is producing cherry sized tomatoes. I thought better boys were supposed to be around 16oz??

Is this size all I can expect from this plant?

Best guess - mis-labeled plant. Don't know how they could claim heirloom and F1 combo- Better Boy unless it is a grafted stock plant. Maybe they used BB root stock with some heirloom cherry graft? Never heard of it being done but with all this "organic" and "grafted" hype floating around lately it could be anything. Call the vendor.

But yeah, those aren't BB tomatoes.

It could be the sweet 100, it's probably mislabelled.
