What are the pros? Good unique flavor, productive
What are the cons? fruit cracked
These performed well in my South Dakota garden.
I pruned them to one stem, and they were loaded with clusters. These plants seemed to be more disease resistant than other heirlooms, however, the fruit split horribly, sometimes on the vine, and sometimes as I was picking them. I found that picking them at the first elbow on the stem helped with this problem.
The taste was very good, and as the description says, with a complex flavor much like a big black tomato. These were sweet, but less so than many cherries. Definitely one of the better cherries I've had. I preferred them to the intense sweetness of Sungold. People at the farmer's market bought them up and asked for more.
