What are the pros? Productive tomato, good flavor
What are the cons? Prone to splitting
These tomatoes grew super rapidly and I really was surprised. I expected a designer tomato to be a bit fussy, but it was productive and vigorous. I think the flavor is great, we enjoyed them quite a bit. However, we've had some water issues and found these prone to splitting. When I began to harvest the tomatoes, so many of them split during harvesting that I had to toss them right into a tomato paste instead of keeping them around for salads. I've thrown most of them directly into a tomato paste. They will only stay intact if I cut off the entire cluster of tomatoes. Otherwise, good tomato and we enjoyed them. The plant is easily 8 feet tall and our tomatoes have been about the size of medium to large marbles. Will grow again next year despite the splitting.
