What are the pros? Novelty, easy to harvest

What are the cons? Bland flavor, poor germination

Review:

I've grown many Wild Boar Farms tomato varieties and was excited to try this because of the novelty of the huge clusters. I had very poor germination- only 1 of 10 seeds sprouted. My clusters were maybe 1/4 of the size of the one pictured in the product listing. I find the flavor of most yellow tomatoes to be pretty bland and was hoping this one would be more flavorful but was disappointed. Ripe tomatoes slip off the plant fairly easily which can make it easier to harvest, but wasn't good when we had a week of thunderstorms and high winds knocked a lot of tomatoes onto the ground. I don't have a lot of growing space, so this one definitely didn't make the "grow again" list.

Review:

These have outstanding flavor and are so beautiful! Huge clumps of fruit, stake them well! Some of my plants drooped almost to the ground, around my trellis, heavy with fruit.

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Produced well.

What are the cons? Lacking in flavor.

Review:

These seeds germinated very well, grew rapidly, and produced more than we could eat! The kids loved picking them. The clusters were fabulous. Low maintenance plants. I abandoned them around August when school started and I had to go back to work, but they continued to produce until cold weather with no watering or weeding. To me the tomatoes were kind of tough skinned and lacked flavor.

Grown from self collected seed

What are the pros? Tasty

What are the cons? Not as big clusters as shown

Review:

Grew well here in 2016 but seeds harvested have not germinated. I guess this is a sterile/infertile strain that you can't collet seeds of ? Has anyone else been able to grow it from seeds collected from seed grown plants ? Paul

What are the pros? lots of tomatos, falls off EZ

What are the cons? flavor avrge, falls off too EZ

Review:

Also would like to compare to Ildi like previous poster. They both have huge clusters of flowers 40-60 flowers. Barry's had more flowers that actually became fruit and ripen. The flavor isn't as good as Ildi and maybe needs a few days of extra sun ripening to get max flavor. This variety has a unique property where you just slightly touch a relatively ripe tomato and it falls right off the plant without much effort. All my Barry Crazy plants all had this property. That advantage also becomes a disadvantage as a slightly windy rainstorm or slight shaking of the plant by a groundhog will drop alot of fruit at once. I'd grow it again with all its pluses and minuses.
