BURPEE BALCONY HYBRID

BURPEE BALCONY HYBRID

~BURPEE BALCONY HYBRID~

We grew these last year, and I was quite impressed. The plant was loaded with beautiful red tennis ball sized fruit early. These plants grew to be about three feet tall and bushy. The Balcony Hybrid is a heavy producer of beautiful, juicy, disease resistant fruit. These can be grown in containers, provided the container is large (at least 3 gal.). Said to be Verticillium, Fusarium, Alternaria and Stem Canker Resistant variety. Very heat tolerant.

This cultivar would do well in a large container.

    • They are Burpee seeds. Next spring look for them where you find Burpee seeds. One word of caution though…when buying Burpee seeds, stick to the Burpee Hybrids…I’ve had a lot of trouble with other Burpee seeds actually growing into what they were packaged as.

    • I was unable to locate them. Most website store front don’t list items that are out of stock. Why don’t you try searching for them towards the end of winter when stores begin stocking for spring planting.
