This tomato is a real winner. Production is outstanding. Size is medium with some being a little larger. Taste is good but not real acidic (I prefer a real acid tomato) but makes up with terrific outputs. It really does well in my hot/humid climate. It is very impressive and is the best overall heat-set tomato that I have grown.

I am using this one as a green house crop,and so far it is working very well-I use a different crop support system than I use with indeterminate Tomato plants,-also-The disease resistance is a little less than my other varieties but they are disease free for now.-it has a lot of healthy blossoms that set fruit, even at low temps.[45 deg.] as well as the high temperatures it was designed for. -- Michael, Orangesprings FL.

This a 1989 release from the University of Florida, Bradenton. It is designed for the hot and humid conditions of the Southeast. In addition to Fusarium 1 and 2, it has resistance to grey leaf spot.
