Tastes great - production poor

Out of 16 varieties and 50 plants, it was one of the poorest producing, producing only about 6 small tomatoes per plant. This was the second year I tried them, but I will not try them again. My garden space is too valuable to get 6 tomatoes per plant, no matter how good they taste.
One of the absolute best

This is a fabulous tomato. Among the top 3 of the 100's of tomatoes I have tasted for flavor. Texture is fabulous too. The Japanese know what they are doing!
