I have grown this one but cant remember the time to ripeness in my area but  68days
(from transplant) sounds close.
This an excellent tom.both in flavor and production...It came from south America as
I recall and was so named because it was unnecessary to spray it for insects.I
certainly thought it a worthy offering and it lived up to its name.
I hope you agree.
