Pretty tomato, but the flavor was just average.

I got seeds of these in the Nov. 2017 seed swap here. It's mid June and they are 15 inches tall and are growing well in my garden. They have their 1st flowers, so I'm watching for fruit to start soon. The name and picture are what made me want to try these to see how they do in my south Louisiana heat and humidity. So far, so good!
