Planted two of these this year in 5-gallon buckets and they have been great.Terrific on burgers or BLT- firm, but very tasty. Only issue is they seem more prone to splitting then other varieties I've tried.

This was my main production tomato in 2009, and we thought it was the best variety I grew that season. There was heavy production of large pink tomatoes all through the season, and the flavor was excellent. I'm relying on this variety again in 2010.
