Grown in container in Minneapolis, the flavor was disappointing, rather watery and one note acidic. More susceptible to blight than my other heirlooms, the plant is barely going to make it to the end of August. Much later to set fruit than anticipated.

New Yorker tomato is an O/P early bush type somewhat similar to Bush Beefsteak. Baseball size fruit with slighty ribbed shoulders, quite tasty tomatoes. Healthy plants with good fruit cover were disease free through out the season. Seed used was from Crosman Co. in Rochester NY
