Mamie performs!

by

This variety reminded me of grandma’s. Produced all season long. Added wonderful flavor to spaghetti sauce!

Winner for slicing

by

Nice flavor. A favorite among friends. Big slicer for sandwiches. I found it best to pick right before fully ripe to avoid cracking/rot.

Large fruits, pick early, low producer

mushy

by

Fairly good producer but always soft and mushy. Tried picking at all stages of ripeness but to no avail. Possible too much rain this year. The tomato really had little taste.

Best mater ever eaten

by

One of the best tasting maters I’ve ever grown.

Not acidic, meaty, not laden with lots of gel and seeds.

Lots of large .5-1 pound maters. Needs good staking, produced all summer long.
