Comments:

2015 Very strange extremely upright growth habit - I've never seen anything quite like it. Really great, reliable producer, good all around tomato flavour. This is a fantastic variety - nothing seemed to slow it down even in a year where the heat was killing other varieties. Some of the very latest fruits in the season took on a distinct pear shape. Approx 4.5lbs per plant.
