Not that early for me. Stupice, Moskvich and a couple of cherry varieties beat the two plants I set out by a week or more for first ripe fruit. Taste was kind of bland for a homegrown tomato. In no hurry to grow again.

An early round red introduced in 1950 by Burgess Seed and Plant Co. Compare to Victor
