Description: Indeterminate. Originally from the Hawkes Bay, but came to us from the Harrington Collection. This tomato produces huge flattish yellow fruit in large bunches, where the first fruit to set is the largest and they get smaller as they set. Healthy vine, fruit has lots of flavour and is a really great tomato for us here at Koanga, in the Hawkes Bay. We love it!

When leaves touch, transplant into 10 cm deep pots or trays to 10 cm diagonal spacing. When 10-15 cm high transplant into garden 50 cm spacings in rows. Two rows per 1m wide bed. Needs staking.
