Gardeners' Notes:

Tried this (and Mountain Magic) in 2013 and had great success in a garden that was devastated by blights the 2 previous years. Good production and no blights or other diseases despite a lot of rainy weather. Taste is good, but not great. Still, if you have a blight problem, this is the best you can do.

Positive Farmerdill On Nov 15, 2012, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Large fruited (10-14 ounce) globe shaped red. Large determinate plants. Has resistance to both early and late blight as well as Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus. Not as large as Amelia but to date higher disease resistance.t
