Great flavour, good crop. More like a beefsteak. Plant did very well in my greenhouse. I'll continue to grow this variety.

Rich, intense, tangy old-fashioned tomato flavor. This variety can tolerate cool growing conditions. Ideal also for greenhouse conditions during winter growing. Medium-size, round, bright red uniform fruits. Wonderful flavor.
