What are the pros? Tastes great, heavy producer
What are the cons? No good for super extreme heat
I planted these in 2015 and then again in 2016. I had 4 plants in 2015 and at the height of production was getting 10-15 tomatoes per day. And they're delicious. Beware, they take a lot of space, can grow 8 foot tall and get very leggy. I planted again in 2016. Now the summers here in New Orleans are oppressively hot and humid. 2015 was the normal misery but not hotter than around 92-94. 2016 was even hotter, it was hitting 95-96. The plants were big and tall and healthy but nary a tomato did I harvest. Maybe those couple of degrees in temperature made the pollen too sticky. I don't know. I got flowers, I tried hand pollinating, but alas, no fruit. When the plants were about 6 inches tall I a brought a few up to my Dad in New York and he had great luck with these on Long Island.
