2017 Did much better for me in 2017 than 2016, even with a cool prolonged spring and then really high temps for the later half of the season. Nice tomatoey flavour, medium to firm fruit. Really good for fresh eating. Took quite a while from fruit set to ripening, but that might have been due to the heat. Fruit shape is kind of a cross between oxheart and a blocky pepper-like form - very interesting! 3.75 lbs/plant.
2016 Crop failure.
