These did not preform well for me in an otherwise great tomato year. Fruit set was not remarkable for a roma type. Fruits often did not ripen to a full red, but I would not call them orange. More like a wimpy red. The fruits were somewhat hollow inside and light weight in hand. Not what I'd call a meaty tomato at all. Will not grow again as there are other better paste varieties.
