Gardeners' Notes:

Positive stormygace On Dec 27, 2009, stormygace from kure beach, NC (Zone 7b) wrote:

Heavy producer of 4 - 5 ounce dark pink - purplish fruits on healthy plant. In spite of late start, this plant produced like gangbusters from mid-season on. Flavor - wise in my top 10 of 103 varieties grown last year - full tomato, a bit on sweeter than acid but rich, not at all flat or simply sweet. Beautiful abundant fruit - vigorous plant that liked caging & had no problems with hot & humid weather (produced through the heat) - invited back for 2010!

Another one of the mainstays of my garden. I realize that the taste of tomatoes is often predicated by growing conditions but this tomato is always wonderful and has produced some of the best tomatoes I've ever tasted. I usually do better growing the medium sized tomatoes so this one produces very well for me.

Good to very good balanced flavor. Most fruits were tennis ball sized for me, some a little smaller.

Good tomato flavor. Thin green tops tended to crack. Smaller than I expected for a "medium" tomato.

"Medium to large, dusty rose-purplish globes... flavor is absolutely fabulous, rich and beyond description."
