2017 Really great variety! Blemish free red oblate fruit with some darkening and ribbing at the shoulders. Great classic tomato flavour, not too sweet. Strong, stout bushy plant. High temps during the later half of summer seemed to have delayed ripening, but still produced really well. A definite variety I will grow again. 6.75 lbs/plant.
