The aroma alone is enough to make me grow this tomato again.It has that old fashioned tomatoey perfume that is sooo intoxicating to tomato lovers.

The fruits are well over 1 pound on the average and I had several over 2 pounds.The vines are sort of wispy and frail looking,but that is something heart shaped tomatoes have in common.They aren't overly productive,but the taste makes up for the lack of fruit. They are Tomato Heaven!

The seeds came from The SSE Yearbook and originally from Carolyn Male,and are one of the best tomatoes I've had in years...and that says alot.They have a great balance of sugar to acid and are great in everything I've tried them in.
