Gardeners' Notes:

This is one of my favorite tomatoes! I love to do 'taste tests' on people and did so about ten times last summer with several different varieties. Each time, every single person chose this one as their favorite. Nice compact plant, too. Good for Topsy Turvey or any container.

Compare this tomato with Solar Set, and you have "tomatoes and eggplants." There is no comparison. Solar Set is much better and costs less at this time as well.
