Defiant tomato was new for 2011, and you can still almost hear the trumpet fanfare. Named for its defiance of most troublesome tomato diseases including late blight, Defiant brings great flavor, color, and texture in the mid-sized, mid-season group of tomatoes. It is a delicious addition to any garden, but especially one that has potatoes or is in an area prone to disease. Plant tomatoes from spring (after the last frost) through early summer. If you buy early, you can keep plants on a sunny windowsill until the weather warms. To plant early, protect plants with row cover.
Resistant to Verticillium wilt, Fusarium wilts 1 and 2, Alternaria Stem Canker, and Late Blight.
