What are the pros? Grew fast, didn't get too tall
What are the cons? Distorted fruit
This is the strangest tomato I've ever grown. The tomatoes all were multi-lobed and bulbous, very misshapen and distorted. It was not a nice round normal-looking tomato at all. It was like several had grown together, creating one grotesque fruit. I only had one tomato that was anywhere close to looking like a normal round tomato. I asked a Master Gardener locally (Pac. NW) about this and he asked if it was an heirloom variety. I said, "Yes", and he said that heirlooms can be like that because they have not had the "wild" characteristics bred out of them by hybridizing. So, now I know. I had a hard time deciding how to cut it up. It was like eating a gingerbread man--what do you eat first?~~the head? the arm? or maybe a leg?! There were still other lobes left and some were still green! I wouldn't recommend this tomato unless you want to see it for yourself. Flavor was OK--tasted like a tomato. Maybe I should be less judgmental, and more accepting of "challenged" tomatoes!
