I'm from Santa Rosa, CA where Luther Burbank made his home for many years, so I always like to try culivars from his work. This determinate tomato has a nice, even flavor, if not slightly acidic. The skin is fairly thin, which I like. It's sometimes mottled red and orange, and frequently make a "probiscus" near the blossom end.
