Gardeners' Notes:

This variety is impressive and it's one of my winners. The taste is acidic and production is great. The size is average but tomatoes can grow large. To my surprise, this variety performed well in my hot/humid climate. This variety is in my garden every year.

This is my first time growing Sioux and I am pleased with it. The tomatoes are red-orange, medium sized with a tangy, tomatoey flavor. Sioux is a more acidic tomato than some, but not unpleasantly so. The plant has had some folliage disease but has continued to produce a good quantity of tomatoes in spite of it. A good workhorse red for canning.

Plant is a heavy bearer of small, bright red tomatoes. Holds up well in heat; the plant shows nary a trace of foliage disease or blossom-end rot in my garden, even following a week of 100+ degree temperatures. This may well become my garden mainstay.
