Surprisingly flavorful paste type tomato. Although not nearly as good as Anna Russian, probably my number two paste tomato. Very productive.

These tomatoes are shaped much like a elongated pepper (and are sometimes called Pepper tomatoes). They are about 4 inches long, 2 inches thick, and have a red skin. They are not perfectly round - rather they almost seem boxy - they have 4 distinct sides and feel almost like a 4inch by 2inch rectangular box.

Used for paste/processing.
