Mild but flavorful, meaty - an excellent slicer for all fresh uses. Rivals a beefsteak in size. Not at all watery. A great cooking tomato. Easy to grow. Tolerant of weather. Freeze them whole for fresh tomato taste all winter. If you make Hungarian food, this is the tomato you want to grow.

meaty and deliciously flavorful


Hands down, THEEEEE very best tomato I've ever eaten in a Caprese salad, and I only eat good organic heirloom tomatoes, so it has had competition for "the title."
