A Must-Have in your Garden
by Victoria H
I've been growing this tomato for 4 years and it never ceases to amaze me how productive it is. I always have extra to share. The plants are huge when fully grown, which I wasn't expecting the first year I grew it! Big tomato cages are too small to contain the long vines! Once they've grown out of their cage I drape the vines over other cages so they don't sit on the ground. Planning on coming up with a better system this year.
Flavor is slightly sweeter and less acidic than the average tomato. A favorite of my toddlers! Easy to seed start. You won't be disappointed with this one!
Super productive, and a great snacking tomato
I agree with the other reviewer - these are the easiest super-productive tomatoes to grow. They also grow easily from previous year's tomato seeds that fell to the ground, haha.
I've grown these in middle GA and now in NW florida. I'm trying the single stem method to keep them from growing out of control. They are the first tomatoes in our garden to produce fruit.
