This tomato was incredible up here in the high altitude!! It produced tomatoes ALL summer long right up into the fall. There were sometimes over 100 tomatoes on the plant. Average size 4-5 ozs. Some bigger. some smaller. You could pick a tomato for every use. Salad, sandwiches, salsas, and plenty left over to can. This is going to be one of my staples for tomato growing. It was a hardy. sturdy, dense plant. Love this tomato!!!

Growing this one in a 5gal bucket this year, and even with the drought and intense heat waves we're experiencing, it is doing beautifully! Plant is healthy, fruit is delicious and relatively blemish free! Has resisted cracking and blossom end rot, even when other varieties in my garden have not. Will definitely grow again.

Easy to grow. Very good tasting, medium sized fruit on compact plants. A great "main cropper" red. Super productive.
