2019 Good production for a truly awful growing year. Wet weather delayed ripening a bit, but did pretty well considering.
2011 Hearty plant, good production of very uniform round red fruit approx 2" in diameter. Excellent choice for a market tomato. Good balanced flavour. Regular leaf. 80 days. I saw indeterminate growth, but PGRC lists as determinate.
