When you have root knot nematodes and you want to grow tomatoes, someone will inevitably tell you to grow nematode resistant strains of tomatoes... what the heck does that mean? Certain hybrid tomatoes (ones that are bred by plant breeders at universities across the globe) have defining characteristics that make them super appealing to us home growers. You'll notice that many of our varieties were “bred for humidity tolerance” by UF or University of Hawaii, making it easier for us humid growers to have success, for example.

The Sweet Chelsea is a productive & delicious red cherry tomato that is not only NEMATODE RESISTANT but also resistant to 10 other common tomato issues, like Fusarium Wilt, Tobacco Mosaic Virus & Verticulum wilt. While we haven't grown this specific variety ourselves we will definitely be giving it a try this year because of the reviews we’ve seen of it from other farmers and its NEMATODE RESISTANCE!! :)
