Neutral Farmerdill On Nov 10, 2005, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

From Semena, which offers this description: "A new highly productive tomato hybrid with an indeterminate plant habit. The plant is very vigorous, with short internodes, making handling of plants and harvesting easy. The beef-type, flattened globe-shaped fruit weighing 190 - 220 g are very uniform and have an excellent color. Resistant to Cladosporium fulvum (races 1-5), Fusarium wilt (races 1-2), Fusarium crown and Root rot, Tobacco Mosaic Virus (ToMV), Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV) and Verticillium wilt. Suitable for vertical culture in glasshouses and plastic film greenhouses, as well as for open-field cultivation."
