An indeterminate tomato hybrid with a unique disease-resistance package on a vigorous plant
• Vigorous growth for winter production
• Above average fruit size
• Attractive long shelf life fruit
• Excellent stability
An indeterminate long shelf life tomato hybrid suited to open-field production for the fresh market.
Medium to late maturing variety. In Summer plantings the first fruit will mature in 85 - 90 days after transplanting. The date of harvesting may vary by as much as 10 days between early and late season plantings. This needs to be taken into consideration when planning planting schedules under different growing conditions.

Under protection: the plants could either be trained to a single stem on a supporting string and then layered down, or pruned to two stems and stopped at the desired height. The planting density should be 2-3 plants/m².
