Very, very vigourous plants but little if any fruit produced. What was produced was mealy and had no taste. Perhaps to hot in East Texas for this variety. Sorry Hillbilly, I won't try you again.

Very nice tomato. For me, it was very productive, and tasted very sweet and fruity. All my friends and family enjoyed them.

I grew yellow hillbilly last year. It did really well. Nice healthy plants with a good amount of large fruit. I loved the taste too, just sliced and sprinkled with salt. I'm growing more from seed for this year, 2010.

Raised this plant from seed. Sure the plant grew fine, but it never flowered ONCE during my whole growing season here in zone 7a, much less any tomaotes.....very dissapointed with it. :(

Hillbilly has a place in my garden every year. It has a wonderful sweet flavor, striking appearance, and produces like crazy all season. Anyone that I know that has ever tasted it loves it. It has no drawbacks other than the bugs like to eat it too.

It was beefy and a decent tomato for what it is, a red-striped yellow beefsteak. However, it takes so long to get a tomato to full ripeness that you really need to either grow it several zones south of where I'm at (Northern Ohio, zone 5), or start it indoors in January. As it was, I only got about three tomatoes from this plant before the frost.

Plants were very productive here and the fruit was attractive. Flavor average.

I have had little success with bi-color beefsteaks in this climate, and this one is no exception. It rapidly succumbed to nematodes.
