One of the most reliable tomatoes I ever planted. Usually the first to produce and last to stop producing. I would give it a positive except for the bland taste and its kind of watery.

Trying in 2006 for the first time. One review I saw said they are prone to cracking in wet weather. I would classify as a medium rather than a cherry because they are supposed to be 4-6 ounce fruits, 2 inches across.
