Very good


Nice flavor and good size, but there weren’t as many fruits on the plants as I’d expected. I did enjoy them though, so I’m giving them a go again this year.

A sweeter not too acidic gem


A sweeter, not too acidic tasing mater. I love this one.

The plants aren’t huge growers… about 6ft. Silver, fuzzy foliage. Easy staking— easily grown in a container.

This tomato stays red-orange. It doesn’t get red upon ripening.
