I grew this one last year mainly for my mother, she loved it. Such an amazing little plant. It was so loaded with tomatoes, I couldn't see how it held them all. They ate off it all summer long. Needless to say I am growing it again this year.

I grew this tomato primarily for the novelty of it. But it does grow very stocky, healthy plants with very heavy fruit set. Works well in pots. Taste is not good at all--but it makes a good foil to fool the birds into eating them rather than the good red tomatoes; so I grew it for them. Our birds are not very intelligent, and will totally ignore orange, yellow, or black tomatoes so I grow far more of those.
