This was very disappointing in this year's trials. It has very little resistance to TSWV. Not only are fruits affected, but the vines are going down as the fruit begins to ripen. I had high hopes for it as Mountain Merit is a very good TSWV tomato. Mountain Majesty is the poorest performer claiming TSWV resistance that I have tried to date.
