Received seeds from and all I can say is wow! This plant is prolific, easily 6' tall in my square foot garden and loaded with tomatoes. The tomatoes are delicious, a very delicate flavor. These will be a permanent addition to my must grow list!

There's a reason for the picture I did for the database.These are the Pink Champagne of the tomato world. They are full bodied,not terribly sweet,but with a pleasent balance of sugars.Just how I like Champagne.

Named for Dr.Carolyn Male,it originally was a pink sport thrown by the delightful Russian cherry,Galina's.

Seeds are not widely available yet,but can be obtained through SSE,and possibly a few other sources by now.
