    Best tomatoes ever. They ripen at the same time for canning, they are about all the same size so they cook together timing wise, they have strong enough flavor and juiciness for slicing, they are easy to steam and peel, they produce until frost, they are meaty but not tough or mushy or grainy, they are easy to grow without stakes as they just grew on the ground, and this all makes for the best tomatoes in my book. I raised them for years for canning. Love, love, love them.

    Will NOT grow these again this year. Aside from them being somewhat small, they were nowhere near as tasty as my favorite Better Boy! They seemed much more acidic.

    I grew these last year in my straw bale garden and they were fan-tab-ulous producers AFTER it cooled off in August, September & October. Confession: I live in southern New Mexico where the temps climb into the hundreds in June and July. Last summer and fall I put up 50 pints of salsa and about 40 pints of whole tomatoes from all of my tomato plants (9). Many were produced from this one hard working plant. I’ve looked for them this year at the typical stores (Lowes, Home Depot, WalMart) but can’t find them. I’ll keep looking because this was my favorite tomato last year. I’ve always been a fan of Celebrity which is a dependable producer in my climate but this Heinz Heirloom surpasses Celebrity in production and taste. It’s very disease resistant too!

    I grew these for the first time last year and they were wonderful! Each plant bore lots of tomatoes without sprawling around too much, and since they all ripened at close to the same time they were excellent for canning. I made great salsa with them, too! I hope to be able to get these every year.
