This was probably my most productive tomato growing this year, with tons of really large fruits. Unfortunately, the flavor wasn't all that impressive for us: kind of one-note sweet with none of the tang or acid that we like in tomatoes. They were juicy. Made most of the tomatoes into a canning sauce. These tomatoes also had very woody stems and large woody core; the fruits had to be cut from the bush. The best thing about this tomato is how pretty it is to look at.
Not on our favorite list.

I'm taking back what I said about not liking this tomato very much. It turned out to make a really delicious sauce that we enjoyed over winter and into 2017. Rethinking growing this one again for it's plentiful and juicy fruits.
