Delicious and bountiful
Love these, they are bountiful and amazing to eat fresh in salads. We grew so many on just 3 plants I was a little sick of them by the end of the season - a great problem to have!
Not your typical yellow tomato flavor
A sweet, large, meaty, but juicy and delicious tomato. However, it was not very productive for me.
Even though it’s not a red tomato, it has many flavor characteristics of one, meaning very flavorful.
Star of the Garden!

Holy moly! These guys were the belle of the garden — grew over 7 ft tall and produced massive quantity’s of super tasty, meaty 3 to 5 inch tomatos. I love the sweet flavor, just a bit different than the usual, and way more productive that your average heirloom.
