What are the pros? Intense flavor, healthy plant
What are the cons? Late, gets really big
In my garden, these large cherries were almost as sweet as the sweetest cherries yet had the big-tomato complexity and intensity that most cherries are missing. The tomatoes are also very handsome--much more crimson and dusky purple in my garden than the photo shows. My only quibble is that the skins lean a bit to the tough end of the spectrum and there is some cracking after heavy rains.
Plants were pretty healthy, resisting the usual creeping fungal issues better than my other cherries. Though they were slow to grow early in the season and pretty late to ripen for a cherry, once they hit stride, they were super productive with excellent fruit set, and I had green fruit ripening up for me in the basement into November.
The flavor is so good that even with the lateness and minor issues with the skins, I still give it 5 stars.
Note: they are large plants--easily 10 feet tall--so be prepared to support them well.
