As big and bold as the Big Apple itself, the New Yorker Tomato is a deliciously tangy heirloom bush tomato. At 4-6 feet tall and 18-36 inches wide, the New Yorker Tomato is perfect for the smaller garden. The New Yorker produces 5-6 ounce juicy, red tomatoes that are ready for harvest early at about 60 days after transplanting. As these versatile fruits continue to ripen, they are ideal for fresh use or for canning. Though this tomato is determinate, it will benefit from the occasional pruning to remove suckers from growing in between stems and branches, providing the plant with more air flow and light.

New Yorker Tomato Plant Care  

Plant the New Yorker Tomato in your garden once temperatures are consistently above 60°F in the late spring or early summer. Tomato plants thrive in full sun, so choose a spot that gets at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Plant the New Yorker in nutrient-rich, well-draining soil about 3 feet from other plants to allow it to grow to its natural size. Trim suckers regularly, allowing the plant to put more energy into fruit development rather than new leafy growth.

Growing New Yorker Tomato Plant

The New Yorker Tomato is an early producer, providing ripe fruits early in the tomato season about 60 days after transplant. When starting from seed, sow the New Yorker indoors in March/April so that they are ready for transplanting once temperatures remain above 60°F. 

Because the New Yorker Tomato has determinate growth, it does well in a large container with plenty of nutrients and water. Tomato plants will dry out faster when kept in a container, so be sure to check the soil regularly. Both in a container and garden, provide the New Yorker with a tomato cage or trellis to ensure that the plant has enough support to grow its big, juicy tomatoes. 

Watering New Yorker Tomato Plant 

Early in the growing season, tomato plants may need water every morning, taking care to avoid wetting the leaves to prevent the spread of foliage diseases. Once temperatures are higher later in the summer, tomatoes may need water up to twice a day. 

Feeding New Yorker Tomato Plant 

Tomato plants are heavy feeders, yielding the best fruit when planted in nutrient-rich soil and fertilized regularly through the growing season. Use a tomato-specific fertilizer that is high in phosphorus and lower in nitrogen for best results.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
