Produces lush, thick, indeterminate, regular- leaf, tomato plants that yield from vigorous vines with good yields of large 500 – 900g tomatoes. 10 to 12.5 cm, slightly ribbed, bright-red tomatoes that have marvelous delicious, sweet flavors. This tomato’s excellent taste & meaty flesh make it an ideal tomato for eating fresh or cooking, for slicing into sandwiches, in salads, juicing, preserving & relishes.
