Coastal Pride is the best tasting dwarf I have ever grown. They have a firm texture and are buttery smooth when fully ripe, with a perfect balance of sweetness, tartness, and bold tomato flavor. The persimmon orange flesh is perfect for any recipe, cooked or fresh. For a dwarf, the plants are large, growing over 2 feet in height. I could even see early in its growth that this would be a strong plant with thick rugose leaves. They were an excellent addition to my salsa.
