Determinate — 'Bison' has compact, two-foot tall, regular-leaf plants that produce oblate shaped, red colored with green to copper shoulders. They are juicy with a sweet flavor. 'Bison' is well suited for fresh eating as well as for canning. This tomato is an early maturing variety developed at the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in 1929 by renowned horticulturalist, Dr. Albert F. Yeager from a stabilized cross between 'Red River' and 'Cooper's Special'. 'Bison' is an excellent choice for gardeners in shorter season growing areas, or those desiring early harvests.
Start indoors about 1/4” deep 5-6 weeks before the last frost. Transplant well after danger of frost and ideally when night temps don’t go lower than 50F. Sow these indeterminate plants 24-36” apart. Need full sun and need to stake plants. Fertilize with fish emulsion or a soluble, complete fertilizer.
