Box Car Willie

About Box Car Willie

Named for the singer Boxcar Willie of the Grand Ole Opry, who’s real name was Lecil Travis Martin. Boxcar Willie is a slightly flattened New Jersey tomato variety by Joe Bratka’s father. Indeterminate, regular-leaf, tall, vigorous, tomato plants that yield abundant crops of 10 to 16-ounce, smooth, bright-orange/red slicer tomatoes with distinctly delicious well-balanced, rich, sweet that have sufficient acid to push the flavors forward and guarantee this variety as a good choice for a canning tomato, sauce tomato or salad tomato or perfect for tomato juice. A good all season tomato that produces well until frost. Good resistance to disease and cracking.
