This tomato was specifically developed for dry & hot summers. I have grown this tomato for years. It has an excellent tomato flavor, and the fruit are uniform in size and appearance averaging one pound each. The fruit is perfectly round. One slice covers a slice of sandwich bread. It is good fresh, or as a canner. It is drought resistant. The skin will NOT crack if water isn't applied regularily.

The plant requires full sun, reaches 3-4 ft. ht. and grows best in a cage. It does not like staking or trellis. The fruit ripens over a 3 week period, usually in august, and then the plant is done producing. Remove the plant from the garden after it quits producing as it will die anyway.
