We grew a Tomato called "Tropic" that was yellow, smallish Roma shaped and sized. The foliage was dark green and the plant's habit was slow-growing but bot exactly pretty much Determinate (we got a late shoot but it was weak but bore fruit). The fruit itself was chunky and meaty but with a weak and blah flavor. Made ok yellow tomato juice but nothing worth growing again in our small garden.

This plant has stood up well to the Florida humidity, intense heat, and erratic rainfall. It's one of the best producing plants I've planted this year; although, I'd rate the flavor as "average". Disease resistance seems good overall, and it is still producing with temperatures in the mid 90's.

A 1969 introduction from the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station, Bradenton. It is resistant to race 1 fusarium and verticillium wilts, gray leaf spot and graywall. It is similar to the cultivars Manalucie and Manapal. A tomato designed for Florida growing conditions but suitable for most of the deep southeast.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Gainesville, Florida North De Land, Florida Troy, New York Christiansted, Virgin Islands
