Product Description

Jet Star tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum) are a hybrid tomato that bears red, sweet, and low-acid fruit. They are early season tomatoes, that take about 72 days to mature. But one of the main reasons that they’re growing in popularity is the fact they’re also disease and crack-resistant. Growing them in your garden means you’re facing two fewer problems than with other varieties; Verticillium wilt and Fusarium wilt. The plants grow best in full sun, ideally when exposed to at least 5 hours of direct sunlight. They’re planted in spring, and produce early fruit and yield crops over a long stretch of time each season. You can also get your hopes up when it comes to fruit size. The tomatoes are comparable to beef steaks when it comes to size, and we all know they’re some of the largest tomato varieties. That says it all. Jet Stars don’t fall too far behind Big Beef tomatoes (that produce 10-12 oz fruits), coming in at around with 8 oz on average. This indeterminate tomato variety does best when grown in cages or when staked on a trellis. Sometimes growing up to 60 inches tall, they’ll appreciate some additional support.Jet Stars are known for their prolific fruit production and bountiful yields. Because it’s crack-resistant, Jet Stars can grow through the indeterminate season without any blemishes. Tomatoes are evenly red, globe-shaped, and look good long into the season. They ripen all the way through and are scar resistant. It’s all you’d ever want in a tomato. Jet Stars are bright red, firm, and meaty tomatoes with a mild, sweet taste. People will often say this is because they are low acid. But in truth, the sweetness of these tomatoes is in the higher sugar content. Acidity is actually pretty uniform across the varieties.
