Gardeners' Notes:

Positive turtleheart On Apr 8, 2011, turtleheart from Wexford, PA wrote:

uniform brown fruit with healthy plants that seem to be relatively free from disease. good flavor, but not my favorite for flavor. very similar to nyagous, but larger, and more suitable for fresh use where nyagous may be the better canning tomato. has good flower genes where they are large and open, good for breeding.
