Very mild, low acid, pale yellow, solid early fruit. Good producer. Also sold as "Manyel Moon". I've grown it four years and will continue to include this variety in my green house. This variety is also popular with my friends who have asked for some of the "extras" of my seedlings in the spring.

This was my first heirloom to fruit and provided an abundance of sweet yellow tomatoes. Size varied and they should be kept off the ground as they are very susceptable to rot.
