started late march, planted out late may 2011 did not think
i would have positive results with our short season.
this tomato was amazing.. slow to set fruit but then took off.

it got alot of attention with its size and beautiful coloring.
large plant size
required lots of support for its large fruit
a complex flavor, sweet yet acidic
required lots of even watering with 3 fertilizing
a wonderful kentucky heirloom !
