I found the plant to be a moderate producer, but the beefsteak style of tomato was quite flavourful. I must agree with the previous comment that this plant isn't suitable for a basket. I will grow it again.

I grew these for the first time this year.

I grew them for my "early" tomato this year and indeed they were the first to ripen. The flavour is very nice, for me about the same as Stupice. Very good yields and seemingly good disease resistance. I found the plants to be determinate, but not overly small. I would not grow them in a hanging basket as per catalogue note. I will grow again.
