“Florida Special” is a fine addition to my growing collection of forgotten commercial heirlooms of the southeast US. It is heat and humidity tolerant, and is said to be blight resistant, although I cannot verify this other than reporting that it did not have blight while I grew it.
The fruits are red slicers with rosy red gel and a softer texture than one expects in commercial varieties…very pleasant for eating fresh. The flavor is a balanced and smooth tomatoey blend of acid and sugar.
