Strong vining quality, so must be staked. Starts producing early and keeps producing until the very first frost. You will get tons of tomatoes from this unassuming variety.
A 1988 comparative tasting in the San Francisco area gave it first place for its wonderful sweet/acid, tomatoey flavor and production.
Does well in northern (colder) climates due to its cold tolerance (not frost resistant). Considered a dwarf tomato, these plants only get 2-4 feet tall.
