Det., sprawling regular leaf plant, ~3'+ tall. Foliage is wispy/droopy, which is quite typical for eastern-european paste varieties. Fruits are oval shape, some with a tip. The commercial seed pack said that the fruit can grow up to 600g, but this is certainly a myth! 3-5 oz fruit, which is a bit too juicy for a paste tomato. Very producive, good keeper, very good taste. Some concentric and radial cracking occurs in heavy rainfall.
