Small-medium sized misshapen fruit. Small stature – need lower laterals pinched or they lay on the ground. Great for areas that have a short growing season. 55 days. Karlene usually gets enough for a couple batches of chutney from less than a dozen plants. Original seed came by mail order from USA. Karlene has been saving this seed since early 2000.

This was one of the first tomatoes I ever grew successfully outside in Greymouth which actually ripened , we only have a short season of warm weather here . They are determinate and branch very close to the ground so I had to pay attention to tying them up .
