What are the pros? Great flavor, good production
What are the cons? Ocassional blosson end rot
I have grown these for four years and I they are a must have, I just wish I had more space so I could grow more of them. Seedlings do well, transplants easily, caged they deliver perfectly and without issue. They ripen a bit earlier than most plum, medium, or larger sized tomatoes. The flavor is rich, complex, and smokey. They make wonderful salsas, soups, pasta sauces, and are amazing when roasted and put on pizzas. I can some, assuming anything is left. One of the pasta sauces we reserve this for is made with spicy Italian sausage, Merlot, and spicy arugula. It pairs so well in this sauce that I actually grow it specifically with this sauce in mind. Right now, I only have room for 8 plants, but if I could expand to 30-40 plants (as a friend has), these would all get used up.
