I'm surprised no one has reviewed this tomato. This is my favorite. Highly productive and thrives on neglect. Produces the most umami flavor of any heirloom tomato I have tried.
Productive and different
I have been growing these for years, along with nyagous, as my dark tomatoes. These produce a lot of tasty tomatoes with a less acedic, more complex flavor than many red tomatoes. Give tham a try.
One of the greats
Such a beautiful shape! Equally gorgeous russet hue with green shoulders. Great keeper, highly prolific, early and delicious.
