Very large tomatoes and quite productive for me. The tomato like many of the hearts is milder than I want in a slicer but with it's meaty texture and few seeds it is a great sauce tomato.

Little bit of history: This tomato was brought to the U.S. in 1901 from a village about 20 miles from Budapest.

I grew this in 2005. It was okay, and the plants were huge, but very few fruits per plant. The top foliage was always very droopy. The fruits that I did get were large and pinkish colour, and made good paste. I'm trying it again in 2006 to see how it goes.
