The first year I planted these "Super-Tasty" tomatoes some of them developed blossom-end-rot (BER), however, this year I amended the soil with more organic, compost-rich dirt including calcium, and, I have not experienced the BER.

The firm internal flesh and less seedy interior (compared to other tomatoes), is an asset, making this tomato plant a yearly planting for me, and, its sweet taste has also been supported by friends and family who ate them. This tomato is deserving of its "Super Tasty" name.
