It produced three large, round, nice, purple tomatoes (that a relative thought was red). Taste was good, but especially good sliced on hamburgers (it's my favorite hamburger tomato). I feel like I could eat a lot of this tomato, and it's the variety I longed to taste the most, until the next season (although I preferred Green Giant for flavor). My plant had a branch with variegated foliage (and one of the fruits had some faint variegation in it, too). The fruits set in very hot temperatures (so, it's heat-tolerant). It was kind of crowded and got a late start (it likely would have been more productive with a change in conditions). The plant was initially quite vigorous, but it didn't end up getting quite large. These were grown in compact clay-type (maybe clay loam) soil. The fruits were somewhat prone to cracking (or maybe it was the skin would split some when picked).

ID DE M

I grew so many tomato plants in 2016 that I decided to grow a couple of these in the same spot (in the corner of a raised bed, in the shade of trees). I didn't anticipate that this would lead to a large harvest, but I wanted to grow both plants. Anyway, I got a couple small tomatoes with good flavor (I tried it on a hamburger again, and it was still good). I saved seeds from at least one of these tomatoes to grow again in 2017. Neither plant had any variegation.

Seed source:

From seeds saved from the slightly variegated tomato I mentioned in my 2015 growout.

Year grown: 2016

Location: New Plymouth, Idaho
