Tips:   Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost. Mulch and provide even moisture throughout the growing season with good drainage.

Incrredibly tast slicer and the best salsa tomato – EVER

Easy to start, grows slow then booms. Prolific large fruits. Beautiful color. Orange, red and yellow inside and out. Photo on website does not do it justice. Tastiest we've ever grown. Incredible for salsa, but just as good on a sandwich. Salsa is more yellow which makes it a talker.
