A very productiv plant, firm fleshy fruit with a pleasant taste. Plants are bit too small for my liking, I prefer the tall indeterminate varieties.

This a pretty plant, with fine-toothed foliage, and attractive fruit. The plants were particularly healthy, especially compared with their early-blight-infected neighbours. The fruit is meaty, not very juicy, taste is OK, not very strong tomato flavour, rather sweet, not much different from most other plum tomatoes I've tried. Heavy producer, even in just a 5 gallon container.
