An open pollinated, indeterminate variety developed by the Univ. of Florida that has excellent versatility. It is almost certain to grow in almost any climate and suitable for greenhouse forcing. A very disease resistant variety that produces heavy yields of medium large 8 to 9 oz. thick-walled pink fruits that ripen to red with some green shoulders. Fruits tend to sit high on the vine under a protective cover of foliage which prevents sunburn. An excellent choice for greenhouse and hydroponic gardening because it will withstand the high heat often found in a greenhouse and a reliable producer under tough conditions. Fruits have a great old-fashioned sweet tomatoey flavor. This variety is a greenhouse variety in Alaska and must have a night temperature of at least 55 to 60 degrees to set fruit, be hand pollinated and requires a considerable amount of room to grow. A proven greenhouse variety in Alaska.
