Outstanding sauce tomato. Very productive, some resistance to blight compared to my other heirlooms. Likes to be fed. Has replaced Amish paste as my main tomato for sauce. Great flavor, bigger, fewer seeds and better blight resistance.

Love this tomato! No BER for me. They are sweet, flavorful tomatoes. I find the shape fun too. They ripen to a deep red hue. The skin gets soft when they are ripe, so they are a bit delicate. I've used them mostly for sauce. Will grow them again.

Excellent flavor, great for sandwiches (not too juicy and sliced longways, fits great on sandwich). Only downside I have found is that it seems to get blossom end rot easily (or my soil is too poor). I'm going to save my seeds, definitely want to grow more of these next year!!
