Solanum lycopersicum

65-75 days, Determinate. Wonderful, blemish-free plum paste tomato with a triangular shape like a persimmon. Dwarf vines bear a concentrated harvest early and fruits ripen even in hotter, drier weather. Perfect for short seasons and small spaces, it was bred at Smithfield Experiment Farm in Ontario and introduced in 1981.  Large for a plum tomato (2.5-3" diameter), 8 oz fruit or tomato sauces, flavor probably to mild to pass as a fresh eater.  Tomato for the North. Though we've had no disease trouble, its said to be not tolerant of major tomato diseases.

This tomato is part of our heat tolerant tomato package.
