2017 Later than Charlie's Green but with a better flavour, and more irregular fruit. Warmer weather did the plants a lot of good later in the season, but the cool, wet weather in spring delayed ripening. Approx 5.2 lbs per plant. 2016 Crop failure. 2011 Very tasty green tomato, complex acidic flavour. A new favourite. I think a warmer year would definitely increase production.
