Introduced 1966 for southern, hot and humid areas by Auburn University. These plants produce good yields of 8 ounce red, globe-shaped tomatoes that are very meaty with good, old-fashioned tomato flavors. This is an outstanding tomato for sandwiches, salads and canning. Great for growing in Southeastern U.S. and tropical regions and relied upon by conventional and market gardeners throughout Florida.
