This has been one of my favorite tomato to grow this summer, production has been O.K but not extremely prolific due to the fact that I had BER in the begining of the season and then my plants got attacked by stink bugs. This tomato is delicious though, I love the fact that it has tons of meat and not many seeds or gel. It really is a great tomato for sauces and also fresh eating, I will definetely grow again.
