We planted two plants late in the season and suffered some neglect due to sickness on my part and yet today I was regaled with some beautiful tomatoes.
They are huge, beautifully pink and are very tasty, not the strongest flavored tomato, but meaty and juicy and not acid.
We are very pleased and grow more next year.
A word of caution, though: the plants are huge as well, so plan accordingly.
