Excellent tomato with great flavor, very solid and meaty. This makes a large plant with wispy oxheart-type foliage. I got the first three ripe tomatos off it 78 days after transplanting into the garden. Anna Maria's Heart set fruit best of any of the 20 varieties I'm growing in this extremely wet, humid year, and it's very productive with about 30 tomatoes on the vine now and still blooming. I'll grow it again.
