I grew these in the 2018 season and froze them straight off the vine. In Jan 19, finally got around to making and canning tomato soup.
OMG. These not very attractive tomatoes make the Best.Soup.Ever. Even my kids noticed a huge differnce in the flavor! I’m growing these for 2019 and doubling my crop!
I bought these in 2012 and grew them as a paste tomato. They did very well and were great in sauces and salsa. Just found them in my seed box and still had 1/2 a package. Threw them into a seed tray not expecting much but I have 16 tomato plants on 4 year old seeds. Very excited because they are bigger then the roma's.
Difficult to find. Have tried several varieties but so far this is my favorite. Excellent flavor and not a lot of seeds.Been looking for this variety.
