I loved these! Yummy yummy! I planted three in a crappie (too shady) spot so mine didnt do much, but the three plants I gave to my friend did well and the tomatoes were lovely. One of the best I've tasted.

Yellow fruits turn golden with time. Nice vigorous plant with good yields. The fruit has a somewhat citrus taste that is enhanced by its color and taken to the next level with a spritz of lime. A real crowd pleaser.

Just a note: Disease problems were terrible this year for the first time using older seed and planted close to a neighbors Hollyhock flowers. Strongly recommend seed no older than 3 years.
