“Ozark Sunset” is so far my favorite anthocyanin tomato for flavor, texture, and productivity. It has been very sweet each time I have grown it. If there is a problem with this variety, it is that the sweetness attracts every stinkbug in the neighborhood. The stinkbugs really do prefer these very sweet and acid varieties, but I am willing to fight them for my fruits of Ozark Sunset. I have noticed that this variety continues to set fruit pretty well in the heat, and grows vigorously in a pot and in the ground. Apparently the wireworms and nematodes didn't bother it, and it must be that bacterial wilt wasn't present at the planting location, because it is not a variety advertised as having bacterial wilt resistance.
If you have a difficult time growing tomatoes, and you like sweet, pink, fat saladettes with dainty purple coats, Ozark Sunset may be an excellent choice for you. The first fruits set low in the plant will not demonstrate as much anthocyanin as the later fruits, higher in the plant and receiving more sun. Remember that the most and darkest purple coloring occurs when grown under conditions of bright light AND cool temperatures.
