Hi Winnie - I am trying them for the first time this year and am very impressed. Large fruit on semi-determinate vines. I had no BER on them and so far, no disease problems either. Took them quite awhile to ripen - just had our first ripe ones 2 days ago - but they were worth waiting for. ;) Meaty and a good solid tomato taste.

They are listed as a determinate variety but my plants are easily 6' plus tall and still setting fruit. That's why I'm calling them semi-determinate. ;)

Here's a pic of some of the fruit.

Thanks, Dave for the info and picture. I did a web search and Park Seed was the only company that come up. Do you are any one else know of a company that Sells Biltmore Tomato seed besides Park Seed. Dave your Biltmore Tomato look very healthy.
