Originated as a “sport” from John Swenson’s Speckled Roman. Spectacular smooth, bright yellow tomatoes that are 2″ wide by 4″ long. Very meaty with nice sweet flavor. One of the few pure-yellow banana shaped fruits available. Great for beautiful luscious tomato sauce. Popular with growers for the marketplace.
