I live in Colorado near the mountains. I do not get consistently good tomato weather. The growing season is short and the sun is behind the mountains by 4pm. I have used this variety provided by Hirts for several years. I get the best results from these even after visiting local nurseries. IF I get the best possible weather (at least in the 80's and not too much hail) I get an amazing abundance of remarkably sweet tomatos. I have to grow in containers and move them around to maximize sun exsposure.
