These tomatoes are sooooooo sweet. They make amazing sauce, salsa, and spectacular munching. The stripes are beautiful.
I didn’t get very many of these from the one plant I had this year. It produced around 20 tomatoes, and very few ripened. Many of the fruits didn’t develop until late October, and the centers were a bit weird. I love these tomatoes and will try to grow them again, although maybe not next year. They really are spectacular in salsa and eaten raw.
