2018 Nice light tomatoey flavour, interesting diversity in fruit shapes on this one, some very pear shaped, while others are more oblate and ruffled. Earliest to ripen, and kept producing until the harvest. Production slowed down a bit with high heat, so might be best in a cooler/shorter season climate. If it wasn't so hot in August, I'm sure I would have gotten more fruit. Benefits more from caging than staking due to its sprawling nature. Approx. 2 lb/plant.
