This was my first attempt with this variety and it did not fare well. The plant developed wilt right as the fruit was ripening. Still, the fruit was not very flavorful and the flowers, though plentiful, felt like it had less than a 20% successful set rate. I will not grow this again.

These beauties have a rich tomato flavor, with the perfect amount of sweetness. Strong, healthy disease-free plants were easy and fun to grow. I purchased my seeds from Gleckler Seedmen.
