Grew in 2012 during one of the hottest summers on record--45 days above 90* which included at least 15 days above 100*. It was my most productive mid-size tomato. Smooth, round shape, unblemished, with a good taste.

My favorite canner, and fantastic for fresh eating, too. It produced great numbers of uniform, smooth-skinned red fruit that fit nicely into the jars (no slicing!); skin removes easily.

Globe-shaped meaty yet juicy fruits with a sweet, full-bodied flavor.
