I have been planting tomatoes for 40 years and these are the absolute worst I have ever grown!! They were very slow growing, were not even the shape they claimed,and worst of all was the taste!! They went to the chickens and I dont know if they even ate them!! Oh and they hardly produced at all!!

I resent the implication that I am helping those horrid organic farmers.

"Fight the blight with this disease resistant mid-size red slicer! Iron Lady exhibits triple resistance to the three major tomato leaf diseases – early blight, late blight and Septoria leaf spot – as well as tolerance to verticillium and fusarium wilt. Fine textured fruit is both dense and juicy with good tomato flavor. Fruit size is 3-4” in diameter and approximately 5 oz in weight. Determinate plants are 2.5-3’ tall and don’t require trellising. Comprehensive resistance to all but one minor strain of late blight. Resistance to SLS is robust, but can be further bolstered by reducing the presence of inoculums: plant Iron Lady away from susceptible varieties. When the siege of disease hits your tomatoes, Iron Lady will be among the last standing! First in a new generation of triple resistant varieties, from our collaboration with Cornell University and North Carolina State University. Determinate." High Mowing Seed
