Gardeners' Notes:

We really enjoyed this little plant when we grew it a few years ago. Yes, the flavor is rather mild, but it was pleasant and it added a wonderful color and texture to salads.

Its strong point is that it is a very reliable performer and, while determinate, ours gave us about six weeks of prolific and steady harvest. That is a big deal in my area, where diseases are rampant.

My teenage son was actually disappointed when it stopped producing. He had grown accustomed to those cheerful yellow rounds in his salads!

Growing this one in 2011, seed germinated in 6 days, waiting to transplant.

Prolific? Yes. Tasty? Nope. Sorry, I just don't like these tomatoes at all and I had tons of them. I can't find any reason to grow these again. Just bland, bland, bland.

Will not grow again.

My vine was very productive, outpacing my attempts to eat them, freeze them and give them away. I don't know their stated resistance but they outlived my other heirlooms. They stored well and looked beautiful in salads. I would recommend trying this one season instead of standard cherry tomatoes. The fruits were shaped more like peppers than pear-shaped.
