Also by far my best tomato this year. I prefer it to Brandywine, Caspian Pink, Boxcar Willie, German Queen, and Mr. Stripey. I have one plant that is completely loaded with large, perfectly round, bright red, tomatoes that have a thin skin that doesn't crack and just enough acidity to provide a superb taste. My first tomato was early July and it appears that I will still be getting tomatoes from it in October. I hope I will be lucky enough to see this variety again next spring at my local Summerwind's nursery.

By far my favorite tomato in the garden this year. My one San Diego plant yielded about 10-12 large, tasty, beautiful red tomatoes. I will definitely be planting more next year. Yummy!!
