If you are looking for the perfect tomato to complement your hamburger, you have found it. We all agree that this has a salty sweet flavor, a bit like tomato soup. Plenty of acid bite to it. Beautiful deep red color, around 1 lb each, with good production. Beefsteak type, and it does not have a lot of seeds. Very healthy plants.
