Comment: I really can't rate this product as of yet, because I just received it and just planted it yesterday. All I can say at the moment is that I liked the way the plant was packaged when I received it. The packaging was very unique in the way it prevented the plant from any damage during shipping.

Comment: These are fast growing plants about 4-5 feet tall. I grew them in containers on a deck that gets full day sun . Need to mulch to hold in the soil moisture .

Comment: I grew these tomatoes two years ago, and hope to do so again this summer. They were spectacular! High yielding, really large juicy tomatoes with the flavor that will take you right back to your childhood. I really can't say enough good things about this Heirloom variety. Only problem for me is that my local nursery doesn't get them now, so I'll have to order online.

Comment: I picked this plant for the heavy yield it should produce. Plant is doing very well so far, it has been about 2 weeks since delivery. I am likening this plant to a Cherry Tomato plant. I have one that has produced about 300 small tomatoes, very sweet. It is in a green house. The recent rains have done wonders for all my plants this year. The southwest desert is no friend to most tomatoes. I am on pins and needles at this point.
