This is my favorite new stable tomato breed that I tried in 2019, and one of my favorites overall (considering this and all previous years). It was early and prolific. It produced all season. Fruits were medium-sized to medium-large. Taste was excellent (but gentle at the same time). Very vigorous. A cutting I took from a pruning of the plant rooted extremely fast in water (a few days). It's regular leaf, has red, roundish fruits, and a medium-sized indeterminate plant. Very easy to grow. Excellent, clean, even germination. I planted the seeds in a starter cell in a seed tray in a 6'x5'x3' unheated Strong Camel greenhouse on 28 Mar 2019, and I got germination on 8 Apr. Transplanted outside (just one plant) on 13 May. Bloomed on 1 Jun. Set fruit by 13 Jun. Pruned it heavily on 3 Jul (just so it would fit in the tomato cage which I put on too late). It had ripe fruit not too long after the earliest tomatoes (out of 40-something varieties, and maybe 80-something total plants). I had it in the ground with black plastic. I gave it no fertilizer and no soil amendments. It had drought conditions. It was in a spot where Sub Arctic Plenty was in 2018. 2019 had a cool spring. The hottest it got all season was maybe 105° F., but no tomatoes showed particular signs of heat stress, unlike 2018 (which was hotter, with a warmer, drier spring). Fruit was later to ripen than usual, but the tomatoes generally grew larger plants than normal, and the earliest fruits were more abundant than normal. The tomatoes generally produced decently. The first frost was earlier than usual. The growing season was mostly arid (except in the spring and the end of the season).
