Smokey umami knockout
This tomato was a winner in our Los Angeles garden this year. Seeds had almost 100% germination rate, and I ended up giving away extra seedlings to friends.
Plants are prolific, and the flavor is unlike any tomato I've tasted before. The best way I can describe it is a sweet, smokey flavor.
The plants seem to do fine in medium-sized pots. One bush that I have growing out of a pot has over 40 tomatoes, last I counted!
I will definitely be growing this variety next year--Already saving my own seeds to do so!
