Huge shout out to this variety. Finally grew out this old seed from 12 years ago or so when I was a SSE member. It is early, prolific, medium sized, beautiful and most importantly very good flavor....almost orange when ripe . People in the north or short season areas who like yellow tomatoes need these in your life! I have grown hundreds of varieties and these just made my top 10.

Sounds good! I'll give it a try. Here's a description from the "World Tomato Society":


Compact determinate plants up to 3′ high produce heavy yields of 5-8 oz. , 2-3″, flattened, golden-yellow globes that are juicy and sweet. Low acid. Excellent flavor. Said to be a good tomato for people who have trouble with digesting the acid in red tomatoes.

Are they fruity or are they tomatoey?


There are two flavor profiles for yellow it seems, those that if you closed your eyes you wouldn't know it is not a red tomato, and those that are... fruity. I like the fruity ones.
I've been working on a yellow breeding project looking for a medium sized fruity determinate.. grew out five F2s this season, only one fruity, one nice determinate but it wasn't fruity.
Maybe you can save me the trouble?

I would describe it as mildly fruity. I grow plenty of reds and always enjoy a few yellows/oranges for a different taste. I had forgotten the original description and was expecting saladette size. These are prolific and most over 6 oz. Good texture . They are not tart like Azoychka but comparable to Dina, Woodle Orange or Nebraska Wedding only more productive and suited to my climate. Sorry I am not good on flavor descriptions, but they are nice.
