From Known-You Seed, which offers this description:"This dark green-shouldered tomato with a red spot around the blossom end is the most popular variety for the Oriental fresh market. Plants are tall, vigorous, and quite tolerant to diseases. Fruits ripen uniformly, and are medium sized, deep globe-shaped, solid, and with very good eating quality. Resistant to nematode."
