This tomato is bullet proof. Nothing seems to faze it. Very productive. Unfortunately it does not taste very good.

The skin is tough as an old football. Kind of pretty but flavor is lacking. I suspect that if grown in a "good" tomato growing region with plenty of rain, this might be a much better tomato. I grew it 2X...there will not be a third, at least here in Texas.
