So far all I’ve been able to find is that it was offered in the Comstock Ferre & Co catalog back in the late 1880’s so it’s been around for a long time!
A nice early, red tomato with fruit averaging 5-8 oz. The fruit are firm but still juicy with a nice old fashioned flavor and they all are blemish free. Even though it is a determinate, it produced for quite a long time for me - which means it's more of a semi-determinate and seemed to handle heat well. It would grow in a container as isn’t too tall but I would still stake or support it.
