Tiffen Mennonite: Tastes like smoked bacon!

This tomato is new for us this year. Have you tried it? Smashing flavor. This heirloom tastes uncannily like smoked bacon, and very good bacon at that.
Also Kellogg's Breakfast -- The first Orange tomato I've liked. Worth a try. Bracing, creamy deliciousness. ...smidge of tartness. It's actually orange in color.
My primary varieties for years have been Pineapple, Reef Red and Fantastic. I may add these new ones. Dave

I grew that a year or two ago. Fantastic flavor, but a very weak plant that hated the summer heat, here. Was that your experience?

Zone 6, south-central PA, very dry summer but average heat, lots of 90 deg days. I water extensively in during the vegetative state.
Regarding plant vigor -- similar observations, but I stagger my tomato plantings and this plant went in at July's end, so it's only now really maturing as the weather is now moderating.
Nevertheless, clearly a weaker, open-pollinated type. But the flavor is so unique I may throw the dice next year and plant half a dozen over a 6 week period starting mid-May.
When you're a tomato nut, it's always fun to savor a new, superior taste, even if vigor, etc. is wanting. Dave
