- Seeds of Change developed this plant, and it was a favorite the first year I grew it. Large, meaty tomatoes, but low productivity. However, in the years since I haven’t been able to get them to produce like that again
- 2014 was the last season I grew it – poor germination meant only one plant went in the ground; it bore one tiny tomato, so I didn’t bother saving the seed from it
- Seeds of Change no longer sells the seeds
