Arkansas Traveler Heirloom Tomato is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from best producing plant ever: Started indoors in Southern Michigan mid march under lights. Planted Mothers day, unfortunately to close together, slowed ripening on lower portion of plants. Ideal placing of 48" between plants will produce ripened fruit earlier. Given enough room plant can produce a bushel maybe more. Just be prepared to support your plants because you can hear them grow!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mainstay in my container garden: This is the third year I've planted these. I live in Houston where the heat and humidity boil through September, but the tomatoes continue on, although with less yield beginning in August. The flavor is awesome.
