I really like this tomato. Production of medium-sized pink fruit was good with outstanding fruit set during last year's extreme late spring and early summer heat. The taste was quite good also. I was impressed enough to start seed for this season. It definitely made the cut! Seed is available from Victory Seeds.

An improved Gulf State Market from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge (1936). It is very similar to the Gulf State market which was the famous pink Arkansas tomato. Newer versions include Bradley, Traveler, Traveler 76, and Ozark Pink.
