Love this variety
I grow 7-9 different, mostly small fruited varieties of tomato every year and this was one of my favorites. Mine grew with a nice vertical habit about 3-4 feet tall and produced 3/4" to 1.5" bright yellow, meaty fruit all season long. I grew it in a "10 gallon" fabric pot and placed it where it'd receive shade during the hottest part of the day and there it thrived despite flea beetle pressure and the occasional hornworm. I often have issues with blossom end rot or splitting growing in containers in my climate, but as the name suggests (what a great name, BTW) it handled our very hot, very dry summer quite well and was afflicted by neither. Great in salads.
