On the Internet, you can find reviews of vegetable growers, who often submit photos of tomato on scales, the scoreboard of which shows 400 or more. Judging by their stories, the tomato hybrid is able to achieve such a weight not only on the first inflorescences, but also on the second and third.

The shape of the fruit is absolutely round and slightly ribbed. An unripe tomato is green, ripening occurs evenly over the entire surface, leaving no green spots on the stem, and the tomato acquires a bright, rich, red color.
