I really like this tomato! The plant is fairly tall with a good yield of tomatoes that range in size from large to huge (1-2+ lb.). Shapes vary, but most were some form of a blunt heart. The tomatoes are dense with an outstanding, complex flavor. The plant produced mid-season for me. I had a little problem with BER early on, but it cleared up and had no problems after that.

This is a great tomato, very good flavor, meaty, solid, and very productive. The plant is enormous, about 7' tall and 7' wide with dense, though wispy, foliage.

I disagree with a couple of things in the description listed here. Vjerino is VERY late-bearing this year, I just picked the first ripe one 92 days after transplanting and the vine is loaded with many green tomatoes that haven't begun to ripen. Also, the tomatoes are much larger than "medium", they're 2+ pounders. My seeds came direct from Dr. Carolyn Male, so I'm sure my seed source is correct.
