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.
My favorite tomato
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.
Very prolific, early maturing. Good eaten raw, also great in the dehydrator. Will grow again
