Red Snapper Tomato a hybrid, determinate tomato variety with consistent fruit set in warmer conditions. It has an excellent disease-resistance package including resistance to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus and Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus. Red Snapper produces large to extra-large, round fruits. Fruits are deep red with a delicious flavor. Red Snapper Tomato is an extremely productive variety with a bush growing habit. It is a versatile variety that can be harvested as mature-green tomatoes or vine ripe tomatoes. Fruits have a remarkable shelf-life once harvested which makes this a great variety for the backyard gardener or small-scale market farmer. Plants benefit from pruning early.

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

    I live in northern Utah, in Hooper. We are famous for growing tomatoes. I grew a test bed of Red Snapper this year. It is the best tomato I’ve ever grown in the 40 years I’ve been growing. Very impressed, Hooper is famous for tomatoes and onions. Substandard varieties don’t make it around here, they get one chance, if they don’t produce they are out.

    They made a lot of tomatoes but they had the worst blossom end rot of all the varieties I grew. I had gypsum in their row so idk what the deal was.
