Great go to
All the way around one of the best sellers and the best in flavor for eating and canning.

A classic tomato! Great all around tomato that very rarely crack/split and very flavorful. Perfect for canning and even though they are technically indeterminate, i would classify them as determinate. They need very little staking and all pretty much ripen at the same time.
