Ratings & Reviews
This is my very favorite tomato. It makes great soups, sauces, and salads. While I don’t always enjoy fresh tomatoes, this variety is different. It is amazing. While the description says determinate, I have had more than two weeks of harvests from these plants both years I have had them. It seems to produce high yields; however, I am not a very experienced tomato grower. But for a first-timer, it hasn’t given me any trouble at all.

I love this tomato. Very multi-purpose, good taste. I've tried them and used for salads and sandwiches. Easy to grow, too.

Nice all-around tomato. Bigger than cherry types, smaller than plum types. Great for drying. Good taste and easy to grow.
