   Great Tomato- not indeterminate, May 15, 2019  By Anonymous (Houston, TX)(Verified)
The tomatoes set quickly and rested on the vine for weeks with no issues. The vines themselves were no more than 5 ft tall. Very prolific and the plants were very strong when they shipped. Will grow next year!
   Did Not Meet Expectations, October 11, 2016  By Bob 
After reading the reviews and product description. I had big expectations, but only to be disappointed. It did not fare well in New Jersey.
   The One To Have If You Want Lots Of Maters, October 11, 2016  By Terry 
The three best tomatoes for me every year are Carmello, Arkansas Traveler and Ozark.
   Great Taste, October 11, 2016  By Cheryl G 
Carmelo is my personal favorite...incredible flavor and lots of jelly inside which is where the flavor comes from. Out of all the tomato varieties I grow, Carmelo is the only variety I never share with anyone.
