Grew for 1st time in 2015. It was the last variety to get blight and the blight didn't really slow it down. Heavy producer and tomatoes have small seed cavity. Canned tomatoes look like jars of canned peaches.

This tomato is said to be a hybrid derived from Amana Orange (I'm not sure what else). It is also said to be resistant to anthracnose. I haven't grown it, yet.
