Excellent flavor; seems like it has some heatsetting potential as well. I will definitely grow again next year.

If you like 'Earl's Faux', you'd probably like this variety too. I found the taste to be fairly similar, but slightly more tart. Fruits are similar in size and appearance as well (it was easy to get the two mixed up on the counter if I didn't mark fruit with a sharpie while picking).

Developed and stabilized by Keith Mueller, Dora is "derived from a cross of 'Brandywine' X 'Cherokee Purple'. Though later and lower yielding than the other lines, this one was chosen for one consistent quality - flavor. Plants are regular leafed and indeterminate. 8-12 oz fruits are pink -red, green shouldered. 80-85 days."
