Can't talk enough about this variety. It produced like a hybrid for me with 10~12oz fruit in the beginning tapering off to 6~7 oz fruit toward the end of the season. Very good taste. Was nearly disease free for me and produce into and through the dog days of summer. It was the only variety that lasted until frost. It is the mainstay of my garden.

Mule Team is one of my favorites. They are very, hearty plants which produce all season. They don't bear quite as heavily as other's but I get fruit which are up to 2 lbs. in size. I had one plant which contracted fusarium wilt, but it lived in spite of this and kept bearing tomatoes. Two thumbs up!

This was a great tomato for my first large garden. Very good yield, large fruit, acidic tasting, would have had a good second crop but finally succumbed to spider mites. Froze and canned very well. Saved seeds, will grow again.

This is not a bad variety but others taste and produce better. Tomatoes were slightly acidic and made good sandwiches but a lack of great production keeps it from going in my garden anymore.

Very prolific , withstands southern humidity and is a great tasting beef steak tomato with medium sized fruit. This is my second year growing this variety with great success in an Earth Box. Will definitely grow it again.

Seeds took longer to germinate than most, but this plant is still producing new clusters of 1lb. fruits in terrible humidity with Florida temperatures climbing into the mid 90's. Produces 20 or more blossoms at a time. Good disease resistance and good flavor.
