Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

80 Days to Harvest 

10-16 oz. fruits (Beefsteak sized)

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


Tall vigorous tomato plants that yield abundant crops of smooth, bright red slicer tomatoes with distinctly delicious, well-balanced flavor.  Named after the famous country singer. A great tomato for every day use and canning. A high yielding tomato that will produce well until first frost.  Good resistance to disease and cracking. One of our workhorse varieties.


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
