Celebrity-Good Variety for Beginner?
The last few years I had a lot of problems with indeterminate heirloom tomatoes, most likely in part because of the high humidity and very high heat that we experienced in the recent NJ summers. I admit, I am an amateur and know very little about growing tomatoes except basic pruning, so many mistakes were probably made on my part too.
This year I resolved to grow hybrid determinate varieties that would be a little easier to manage. I plan on either staking or caging them, the Bush Early Girl that I had a few years ago almost grew out of the cages, but not quite, same with the Roma, so I was pretty confident with the caging idea.
I was planning on doing the Roma again and today someone recommended the Celebrity hybrid. Can anyone give me a thumbs up or down on the Celebrity for my goals and could you give me a recommendation on how to best manage them as far as staking, caging, etc, to keep them healthy and productive?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
