Gardeners' Notes:

This is one of the best paste tomatoes I've ever grown. I've probably tried 50. It's early, which is unusual for a paste, as most ripen all at once at the end of the season - even the indeterminates in my climate. It's also tolerant of hot weather - a bit more than other tomatoes and drop less blossoms when the temps get in the 90's. If you pick all the fruit, even the green, in the first ripening period (when more than half are ripe), you will get another flush or even two of fruiting. The flavor is great cooked (for which these are intended), and just OK fresh - but still better than supermarket tomatoes.
