I grew these for the first time this year.

I grew them as an "early" plum type of tomato this year and indeed they were the first to ripen, along with the Beaverlodge slicer, which I also grew. The flavour is very good for sauce. Strong yields and seemingly good disease resistance. I found the plants to be determinate, but not "extremely compact". I would not grow them in a hanging basket. I will grow again for an early plum variety.
