About Park’s Whopper, CR Improved Hybrid
The original ‘Whopper’ tomato was an American classic. ‘Park’s Whopper CR Improved Hybrid’ tomato is an indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces high yields of 4 inches, red, round, juicy, uniform-ripening, meaty, crack-resistant tomatoes with wonderfully sweet, well-balanced flavors. Resistant to Verticillium Wilt, Root Knot Nematodes, Tobacco Mosaic Virus, and 2 strains of Fusarium Wilt. Said to have greater disease resistance, higher yields, a longer season, and ripe 5 days sooner than the old ‘Whopper’ tomato. Midseason, about 65 days to maturity.

I am looking for another type of tomato in my raised beds in northeastern Ohio. I came across a tomato called WHOPPER IMPROVED HYBRID and wonder if anyone had grown this tomato and if the taste made it worthwhile growing. I am also looking for suggestions of which tomato varieties you might suggest I grow in my family-raised beds. This summer I grew Early Girl, Big Beef, Cherokee Purple, and Sungold tomatoes with some success. I also grew Hillbilly, Brandywine, Mr. Stipey, and Great White with no success.
