These tomato’s work very well in my garden they produced lots of large fruits and were very good was concerned about the hot summers we have in Louisiana but they did great
by Tom A
One of the best we have ever had. Large juicy. Grew in N Michigan.
Love these tomatoes
Love these tomatoes, reliable producer, large fruits, even into late season. Grow great even at 7200 ft elevation in Wyoming, where we have like a 55 day growing season. Tasty and meaty.
Great quality seed excellent germination
Germination is excellent. I started them under a full spectrum grow light at about 3" in standard potting mix. Started to peak through at about day 4. germination rate is pretty much 100%. I added 3 seeds per pot sorry I did now. Will fertilize in a couple of days and report back once they are in the ground and producing.
Excellent germination rate and sprouted quickly with heating mat and grow light. I'm super excited to plant these in my garden this year, looking forward to a beautiful crop.
Side note - This was my first time ordering from Seed Savers Exchange and it has been exceptional. Shipping was quick, all the seeds I have purchased were good quality, good quantity and completive pricing. I will be a customer for life. Happy gardener!
