Results from My Garden

Seed Vendor Gurneys Seed Co.
Will I Grow Again? Yes, because although they are boring tomatoes, it reliably produces a ton of tomatoes. If everything else was wiped out, I would still have a good amount from these Early Girsl.
First Fruit Harvested 68 days from transplant. It was not the earliest variety in my garden: Yellow Perfection was the first, and Burgermaster was tied with Early Girl next.
Fruit Color Red, on the orange side.
Fruit Shape Round, but slightly pointed at the blossom end; slightly oxheart.
Average Fruit Size 3 oz. (a little smaller than I expected, compared to 4-6 oz from seed packet)
Taste okay taste, but not fantastic
Total Harvested very high productivity: my 3 plants provided 63 pounds of tomatoes, which turned out to be over 100 tomatoes per plant
Disease Resistance They were definitely resistant to wilt (fusarium wilt), as I had several plants right next to my Early Girls die from Fusarium Wilt. The ones that were affected by wilt: Green Zebra, Tigerella, Yellow Perfection
Problems Experienced sunburn, or sunscald, was a problem with them
