What are the pros? Heat-tolerant
What are the cons? I have mixed feelings.
I grew these in 2015. The plants took a while to flower compared with most of my tomatoes, but when they did, they didn't take a long time to set fruit and ripen. These are very heat-tolerant. Most of the tomatoes I grew in 2015 were not heat-tolerant. Production on these was decent (I wouldn't call them prolific in the conditions they had, but I've read they can be prolific). The fruits were small. I've read great things about the flavor from lots of reviews, but mine tasted good and like they could taste better. The September and early October ones tasted better, I thought, than the earlier ones that set in the heat. I imagine if I grew out my saved seed again next year, they may taste better, due to being somewhat better-adapted to the conditions here. This variety seems to have above average shade-tolerance, as well as tolerance for crowded conditions (so it might work well in containers). The fruits tasted about the same in a more shaded area as they did in a less shaded area.
