Little pumpkins

This is a very heirloom tasting tomato. If the fruit had been taller instead of flat it would be awesome. Maybe my fault. Produced 10 15/ plant

Great taste but smaller than picture suggests
Larry Kroutil from NC wrote on May 02, 2013

I like the intense tomato flavor very much, especially in sauces. In my experience, the tomatoes have been what I would consider to be small- to medium-sized. The catalog and Website pictures look like they were closeups. I think the pictures make the tomatoes appear larger than what one would actually get.

Great Tomato for Sauce
Ann from IA wrote on November 27, 2012

Heavy production, great for making fantastic sauce (we chopped and roasted the tomatoes and then putting through a food mill to remove seeds and skin). Also dehydrated some for tasty dried tomatoes. Neighbors enjoyed them fresh, too. Second season of growing them - will grow again.

Too much gel

My family didn't care for the texture of the meat of this tomato. It took forever to ripen and wasn't worth the wait. It was a pretty tomato; all looks.

Heavy producer, rich smoky taste
Tammy from NC wrote on January 05, 2012

This heirloom is a heavy producer on a tall sturdy plant. Keep the bottom branches trimmed off to help reduce blight. The rick smoky taste is great in sauces, and adds a complexity to salads, burgers and antipasto plates.
