DETERMINATE tomatoes vines grow 

to a fixed size about 2-4' tall and tend to ripen in a single crop and then fade away.

This works well for canning or sauce, or a first crop if you plant several varieties.

Sometimes called bush tomatoes,  you should not prune or remove suckers but staking or caging is still a good idea to support and keep fruit off the ground.

Days to Maturity figures are really just for comparing between varieties within a category. Actual days will vary from location to location, depending on garden conditions.
