Seed Source: Seed bank stock. Original seed from Twining Vine Seeds, and donated by Meighan of New Westminster, BC (2007).

Comments:

2011 Good all-purpose tomato, meaty interior, good for canning and stewing. No core. Not the best tasting tomato, but not the worse. Does show blight resistance, so a good choice for those who have problems with blight. Very uniform fruit.
