    Must be the best large tomato that I've grown over the last 40 something years. Last year I grew 3 plants and harvested around 12 Kg of fruit, mainly used for sauces (spag-bol, etc.), the sweetness makes for a much different flavour than the traditional plum type (Marzano). Also as they are meaty they are great in salads sandwiches. The best flavour only developes once the fruit has become a deep orange, the reason some growers who picked early disliked the taste. A vast difference in flavour compared with Golden Jubillee which in much less sweet.
