We grew these beautiful little tomatoes for the first time this year. Determinate variety was also new to us. Short stocky stems, very healthy. Good, rich tomato flavor once they get good and ripe. If I had to think of a down side, it would be that they all come in at once. They are not huge, but a decent handful of a tomato. If you've grown Marglobe in the past, that's what these are most like.
I gave this one a trial last season and boy, am I glad I did. First to ripen, good size and loaded,tomatoes all ripened and then the plant was spent, taste was as good as they come for an early variety.
