Very delicious and lots of them.
Reviewed By: Mary (Dover, TN)
My mother grew this tomato and often saved the seeds for the following year. Since moving to Tennessee, I started growing it two years ago. The first year it exploded with tomatoes; the following year, not so many. Definitely not the fault of the tomato. It is wonderful!

The name really does fit it!
Reviewed By: Danny (Beaverton, Oregon)
These tomatoes really do fit their name! They aren't the most delicious tomatoes but they are definitely delicious! They are extra sturdy plants. The down side to this tomato is it did not produce very much. Otherwise, you'll love it!

Delicious !
Reviewed By: Adam (Portland, Me)
Delicious have consistently been my best large tomatoes, year after year ! The taste is fantastic and the large fruits have very few seeds for their size. Use heavy stakes ! My plants routinely exceed six feet in height.
