A very tasty tomato. It grew to about 12 oz, but was very prolific. It is high acid and indeed makes a good canner. We dice it and can. Very pretty result. we plant this tomato every year and have been rarely disappointed.

A good canning type, had a slow start with very little fruit set due to hot weather. Once we got cooler nights, plants really started to set fruit and are very productive. Large fruit with good taste that has a tendency to 'catface'. Will grow again next year.
