I grew these lovely tomatoes two years ago.... I planted 50 seeds and 45 of them germinated beautifully, two more came up late... They were very hardy plants that needed minimal care... The bushes grew so large I had to stake them up with poles and twine, this could have been avoided by pruning, but I wanted to see how big they grew and how much they produced. I kept a journal of how long they took to germinate and about how many pounds of tomatoes I picked per day... By the end of the season I had bottled 72 quarts of salsa and 72 quarts of chopped tomatoes... I gave all of my extras to a neighbor that cooked them down into 20 quarts of spaghetti sauce... These tomatoes taste fresh out of the jar!!!! I can not wait to grow them again this year, I'm finally out of salsa!!!
