Out of all the thousands of hybrids on the market, why did we decide to offer this one? Because it is a great tomato. This was the most heat tolerant of all my tomatoes in the blistering summer of 2011. Spitfire put on loads of nice big tasty tomatoes. Very pretty tomato since it has the crimson gene. The tomatoes start out almost white before they start to ripen. Spitfire has a pretty good flavor for a heat tolerant tomato. The taste is not Brandywine good, but Spitfire was making tomatoes long after Brandywine and others had given up the ghost. This is one of the great hybrids we offer. Every garden should have at least one hybrid growing, just in case.
