Happy with this variety. I have been looking for such vegetables for a long time so that they have large fruits, planted different varieties, but not a single vegetable was completely satisfied. I read the description and reviews on the Internet and decided to plant this species at home. I have been growing tomatoes for two years now and I am very pleased with the yield and taste characteristics. This is the best variety I have ever grown. Now I will grow constantly until I get bored I recommend.
