Gardeners' Notes:

Positive SLO_Garden On Aug 13, 2011, SLO_Garden from San Luis Obispo, CA wrote:

I really liked this tomato. It is orange-red, 6-8 oz, and has a bold tomato flavor with a slight acidic bite. For me, the plant appeared to be a determinant. The plant was fairly compact and bushy and starting early in the season, produced a large crop almost all at once. A good canning tomato.
