Delicious

77 days, indeterminate — The 'Delicious' tomato is one of our most popular home garden varieties. The regular leaf plants set loads of huge fruits that typically weigh in the one pound range. If the plants are grown in the right conditions and are really happy, they may crank out some two to three pound monsters for you.

The fruits are generally smooth skinned with some ribbing at the crown, red in color, fairly crack resistant, with solid interiors and very few seeds. An excellent slicing tomato. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
LOVE Delicious Tomatoes!
I grew four of these plants last summer from seed and also planted several other common types available for our area. The 'Delicious' grew large and with gusto! Outpacing the others. Within a few months my sturdy tomato cages were bent over and crushed from the lush growth. The tomatoes were large and DEEElicious! My family's official favorite tomato. Tastes like tomatoes tasted when I was a kid in the 60's. Full bodied and satisfying. No other tomato I've grown has compared to the great flavor of 'Delicious'. Lots of meat, few seed pockets. In the heat of summer I had to keep early blight under control and found that diluted household peroxide sprayed on the plants every few days, although didn't eliminate it, REALLY kept it from spreading ... (Google the many benefits of Peroxide in the garden.) My plants continued producing into fall, and the blight disappeared with the cooler weather. I will defiantly be replanting these every year!

Huge
I have 22 of these set out, I have not suckered them at all and they are well over 6' tall bushes (beginning of August). Don't be misled these are huge plants and heavy feeders. I'm having to side dress them every other week with 20-20-20 just to keep them happy. The tomatoes on the bottom of the plants are just starting to turn red and are huge (did I say HUGE? - I think I did). I have not picked any tomatoes yet so I have not weighed them but I would venture to say most of the lower ones are well in excess of 2 lbs and a few have got to be upwards of 3 lbs. Don't bother with stakes they have broken my 2x2 oak stakes off at the ground. I had to go and get fence and make cages for all 22 of them.
