I tried this one last year. It was at a very good discount price at Parks seed. Big crop of big fruit, many were over a pound. And pretty tasty too, sweet yet a good tomato kick. Listed as deteminte but they grew into rather large vigorous plants, somewhat semi-indeterminate, requiring sturdy cages. I would grow it again.
