This was one of the most hardy and prolific heirloom tomato plants I have ever grown! The red tomatoes were about 3" in diameter, so not the biggest, but the "perfect" size for sandwiches (I don't care for the huge contorted toms), and they dehydrated very well, too. The plant survived the Blight and continued to bloom and produce until the frost took it.
