An absolutely excellent heirloom tomato—firm, meaty, 3″ oblong fruits with few seeds, on compact vines that are very productive. As a determinate type, most of the fruits ripen at the same time, which makes this tomato a good choice for canning. In areas with a long growing season, a second planting will double your harvest!

This packet yields approximately 24 plants when started inside.

Days to Maturity: 80 days from transplanting

Type: Determinate, Paste, Slicer
