What are the pros? Flavor, appearance

What are the cons? Yield could be better

Review:

Awesome flavor, the best tomato for gazpacho I've ever used...tangy, just the right amount of acid. Also made great BLTs. Last year we had a cold wet spring and colder and wetter than normal summer, reached 90 maybe twice..barely hit the 80s. Felt like I was living in Minnesota. But...got one good yield and a half...these did not crack with all of the rain we had which was a miracle. Will be ordering again.

What are the pros? Beautiful fruits, Sweet Flavor

What are the cons? Not hardy, Poor w/ diseases

Review:

In PA there is usually some early blight that can normally be mitigated through careful pruning. I grew 4 heirloom varieties last year, all of them had some blight at the start of the season...this was the only variety that was eventually killed by it. Everything else thrived. I managed to keep them fruiting for about half the normal season before they died on me. The plants were also the smallest and lowest yield of all 4 varieties. That being said, the fruits I did get from these plants were the prettiest Ive ever seen and absolutely delicious. Very sweet. If you are lucky enough to have no disease issues and enough land to experiment with a low yield plant...go for it. They are delicious.

Review:

I grew the tomatoes in my greenhouse last summer, in a container. They were not only the tastiest of the 16 varieties of tomatoes I grew, but one of the most beautiful with gorgeous navy blue shoulders. I've already ordered seeds for next season, as all my neighbors want one.

Review:

This turned out to be one of the best tomatoes I have ever had. It is meaty, not mushy, and the color is amazing. The taste was wonderful. High yield.

Review:

Pretty easy to grow in compost amended soil with no irrigation or spraying, although it was a cooler, wetter summer than usual for VA. These did very well for us, producing a nice yield that ripened over a few weeks. I noticed that the plants were done producing after one good crop while other tomato varieties went on to keep producing until the frost, but the flavor is so wonderful and they are so beautiful that we will definitely grow them again and again. They begin to turn deep purple/blue and then distinctly red/pink with purple shoulders so we did not find it difficult to tell when they were ripe. Very sweet and meaty--great for slicing or for sauces. Love this tomato.
