mid-early, compact bushy semi-det. plant with regular foliage, excellent fruit set in the cool weather conditions of the Pacific North West, good yield of large red beefsteak fruit, 200-400 g, very good flavor. It was one of the first large beefsteak varieties to ripen for me in the cold and wet summer of 2008, followed by Sibirskiy Velikan Rozovyi, which was a few days later. This tomato is certainly earlier than the local North American large-fruited varieties and performs well in colder weather. Taste is good but not great, mild and sweet, fruit have large core, but the rest of the flesh is very juicy.
