HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! :) Every year some tomato varieties are keepers (to grow next year) and some are not. :) I think this will be a keeper for MANY! years to come. :) SOOOO meaty! It was almost seedless/jelly-less! All meat! :) GORGEOUS orange color and slight strawberry like tapering. Many of the tomatos were HUGE! The flavor is somewhat? mild (like many lighter colored tom.s) and somewhat (but not very) sweet. ;) Grow it! You will like it! :) (I did notice a BIT of blossom end rots on a couple of fruits but nothing too bad. I forgot to fertilize with extra calcium (to prevent it) this year. ;) ........) ........ :)
