Product Details

The Box Car Willie Tomato is a popular heirloom variety celebrated for its large, beefsteak-style fruits and exceptional flavor. These indeterminate tomatoes are known for their size, typically weighing between 12 to 16 ounces each. They feature a classic round shape with smooth, slightly ribbed skin and a rich red color when fully ripe. What truly sets the Box Car Willie apart is its delicious taste—a harmonious blend of sweetness and acidity with a robust, old-fashioned tomato flavor. This makes it an excellent choice for slicing, sandwiches, and salads, where its juicy and meaty texture shines.

In the garden, Box Car Willie Tomato plants are robust growers, often requiring staking or caging due to the weight of their fruits. They typically begin to bear fruit around 80 to 85 days after planting, offering a generous harvest throughout the growing season. Gardeners value this variety not only for its size and taste but also for its adaptability to different growing conditions. The Box Car Willie Tomato embodies the nostalgia of homegrown, full-flavored tomatoes and remains a beloved choice for those seeking a classic, delicious addition to their garden.
