Ratings & Reviews
A good late-producing tomato for cool coastal summers
Good producing tomato, large fruit throughout summer in cool coastal central California. Good slicing fruit, used it mainly for pickling because it is difficult to get over eating a green tomato! Didn't notice any disease problems until very late in the season when it became cooler and moister overnight.
