This new variety for me has become my favorite tomato. It was the earliest one to ripen this year and I picked the last one yesterday just before a frost was forecast. It's prolific, smooth-skinned and crack-resistant and has a subacid, slightly sweet flavor. It was wonderful for salads and slicing and also made a delicious tomato sauce for pasta.
