2018 Another good year for this variety, despite cool/wet spring. Delayed ripening because of high night temps, but still grew quite well. Continues to be a favourite! 6 lb/plant. 2015 Great variety, excellent tomatoey acidic flavour. Heavily pleated. Grew well in high heat, although ripening did delay a bit. Doesn't like to be crowded. Really good production. Earliest fruit was the largest at about 8 oz each. Approx 6.5 lbs/plant.
