Ratings & Reviews
I’ve grown these for the last three years. These determinate plants are heavy producers, providing a fruit with a mild flavor. Although prone to some end rot, they produce so many tomatoes that it’s not a huge factor.
Takes a lickin’ and keeps on producing!
by These guys produce through everything
These guys are a massive producer of tomatoes with good enough flavor to be a slicer if you like the more mild of a yellow tomato. Seriously- these things will produce no matter what. Blight? no problem, Hail? It’ll grow back, Insects? I didn’t need those leaves anyway. This is a good thing because these will be the first tomatoes to start showing blight. The fact that it doesn’t seem fazed by it and keeps producing is beyond impressive. Great little tomato.
I learned about this tomato from a gardening author so I had to try it in my garden and I am so glad I did. It has been one of the most productive and disease resistant tomatoes in my NC hot and humid climate. I like to use these to make a light colored but flavorful pasta sauce and freeze many bags of whole fruits to use during the winter. A fantastic variety.
Fun- But Not as Useful as a Red
I grew two plants of these and they produced great. Not as big as some other romas. The plants are kind of strange- wispy and do not look strong, but they are! I have gotten tons of tomatoes but don't enjoy them much with cooking due to their color. I thought I would love them but I'm over here wishing I would have just done red. I liked yellow/orange tomatoes for fresh eating but the color these turn when cooked is not appetizing.
