Good companion tomato for platters.

Firm and meaty with a thick, full flavor and just a hint of sweetness. A definite keeper.

Neutral Suze_ On Apr 7, 2006, Suze_ from (Zone 7b) wrote:

Dad's Sunset tends to be a late variety. Most folks that have grown it report 90-100 days to maturity. Good keeper, oval 2-2.5" orange fruit.
