This is an egg-shaped, paste-style tomato, similar in size to Roma. As an open-pollinated variety, this is a good candidate for seed-saving for future years. Fairly compact plant, and very productive. I think the flavor is a little richer than Roma, and the texture is not as mealy, so they are good for eating fresh, as well as cooking and canning. My favorite go-to paste tomato.

You mentioned that this is open pollinated, but my searching online indicates that this is actually a F1 hybrid variety...
