Gardeners' Notes:

I won't be growing this one again. Bland tasteless, and often mealy fruit. Horrendously bothered by leaf problems. A loser in my garden.

Positive Farmerdill On Jan 9, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

This is an old variety that acts like the grandaddy of todays hybrid ISI tomatoes. Very tough stiff stems with the droopy appearance. Tomatoes are small ( 4- 6 0z) and nothing special. If you like Husky Pink and want an OP, this one may fit the bill. It will grow here, many others will not. On a scale of 1-10, It would get a 5 on disease tolerance.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
