A good determinante one for 5 gal, containiers.
And even did ok, in my all sandy soil with nematodes.
Here in east central Fla.
Mine was a orange color, - 8oz in sand, and
almost 12oz in potting soil.
Sunscalds badly after 1st week in May.....
Great for a light tasting salad or a sunny side
egg on top, OR with chip beef gravy.

Grew this for the first time in 2009--probably will not grow again. Pretty good production of 8-9oz fruit. It was not very juicy and was so firm that it took me a while to know when it was ripe. My mother-in-law liked the low acid taste, but it seemed rather bland to me. They look beautiful and did not crack even when we got excessive rain that caused other varieties to crack.

The production with this variety was horrible for me and the taste was not memorable. Maybe this variety is better suited for the mountains!

A good "middle of the road" slicing tomato, it is definitely more "UT orange" than gold ;o) Decent flavor and pretty in salads. I wouldn't recommend it for canning, though - it tends to get mushy.

A 1996 dark yellow fresh market tomato from the North Carolina State Univ., Fletcher. It is part of the mountain series despite the name and is an upgrade of the older Mountain Gold. It has resistance to verticillium wilt race 1, fusarium wilt races 1 and 2, and graywall.
