Super Sioux didn't produce in our really hot North Texas heat, but now that it has cooled off, the plant is loaded. Don't have a ripe one yet, but it won't be long.

A hard to find heavy producer of 4-6oz fruits. Does very well in a wide variety of conditions (drought,cool weather). Good choice for high altitudes.

Taste, hardiness, heat tolerance, wet split tolerance, abundance, CAN ability. Grow these if you want tomatoes ALL SUMMER LONG! They are not huge but that is a plus with all that can go wrong with a beefsteak. Early june 09 we had 2weeks of 95+temps WAY BEYOND THE NORM for that time of year. Out of the 5 varieties I planted: Azoytchka, Burpees Jubilee, Better Boy, Steak Sandwich, and Super Sioux. Super Sioux fared the best. Now that we are having abnormal July rains there is some splitting, but all my varieties are. My opinion on taste? I can't speak for Marana AZ golf mecca. I can only speak for Little Rock AR tomato mecca. ARKANSAS IS HEAVEN!

Prolific plants but almost tasteless from my garden this year. Supermarket tomatoes are better, in my opinion.
