Firm pithy flesh is perfect for making tomato sauce or paste. Thin skin bruises easily. Determinate. 70-90 days from transplant.

Winner

Very productive, even after dry conditions hit in the middle of summer. It kept producing right up until end. The plant was a sprawler (I don't prune) and it spread all over my small garden. Other than that it's a winner. I almost consider it more of a paste tomato. Very dense with small seed cavities. Quite tasty and attractive. Nice to just put in a bowl and display them on the table.

small and very tasty

Produced right up till frost in Zone 5 tho fruits were smaller as days shortened. Really delicious. Dense and meaty. Best for eating fresh, a bit difficult to remove skin from between the "lobes." Highly recommend.

Love these!

Small but mighty. A good producer with few seeds--easy to blanch and peel. Great for juice!
