Wonderful flavor...in fact, the most flavorful 'yellow' tomato I've tried yet. Seed and/or starts are hard to find in my area, but luckily it's open pollinated so seeds can be saved.

This variety is wonderful! Healthy and high yield. The fruit is pale yellow and tastes very nice I also have other varieties but this one is my favorite.
