Plant is about 70 inches tall, in 68 days I got my first tomato.In a year of drought the plant has done well above average.Tastes like my Grandparents yellow tomatoes use to. Not being anything spectacular as far producing and tomatoes need to be good and ripe or they have a slight green after taste.It is still growing well as I type this.Good sturdy plant as far as disease and resistance. I like this plant, I think it is returning for next years garden.

Managable plant. A tart taste in a year when blacks--noire de crimee, carbon & nyagous--are on the bland side. Juicy. Bright lemon yellow color is a very nice compliment to other cherry tomatoes.
