Ratings & Reviews
prolific, disease resistant, show-stopper beauty.
by Chris P.
a very disease resistant tomato plant, that was prolific. The outside skin is dark red, but the inside is almost purple dark or very dark red at many places. It makes a great all purpose tomato; canning diced/sauce/salsa, salad, sandwich, and beauty.
It has a nice sweet flavor, minimal acidity if present. It’s a keeper.
