Default Orange Slice

I have 13 plants from Burpee seed, all regular leaf. Third yr growing these. They are slightly larger than Big Beef and almost as productive. Mine are the most solid, meaty tomato in my garden and taste OK but not like Cherokee Purple, Hillbilly or Mortgage Lifter. They need to turn orange from yellow to be at their peak. Very healthy plants and easy to grow. More productive than the big pinks or yellow reds. But pounds per plant maybe very close. Not a point of interest to me as I sucker to 2-3 stems and cull small fruit too. Never allow more than 3 to a cluster. Sometimes only 2 on the plants that produce the 2lb fruit.
