I've been growing this tomato for 2 years now in hot, humid mid-Louisiana & it is the ONLY one I've never had any problem w/as far as disease resistance. Esp.the spotted wilt virus. The flavor was good & plants bore well throughout the entire growing season.

This is a 1997 fresh market tomato from BHN Seed. It has resistance to verticillium wilt race 1, fusarium wilt race 1 and 2, gray leaf spot,and tomato spotted wilt virus.It is the ONLY cultivar that I have encountered with resistance to SPOTTED WILT VIRUS. This the virus spead by thrips that gives me the most trouble. It is also a decent tomato, later than Celebrity but larger.
