Crack resistant thick-walled fruit are between golf ball and tennis ball sized. Great for canning or fresh slicing. Determinate habit so get out your canning equipment when the first ones start to turn red! Reliable producer and high yielding for me when grown in 50% aged cow manure/loam here in south central Massachusetts.

I favor this variety for making homemade salsa; nice chunky flesh that has a distinctive old time tomato taste.
