What are the pros? Beautiful fruits, Sweet Flavor
What are the cons? Not hardy, Poor w/ diseases
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.
