What are the pros? Quick producer and color

What are the cons? Disease intolerance

Review:

Growing these in my garden on the east/ south east side of the Big Island of Hawaii and so far they're doing pretty good as far as growth and production. As far as disease resistance goes they're not so good. My plants have already been affected by blight and I've had to start spraying to keep it at bay. Although the weather here has been unfavorable for keeping blight away (hot humid days and rainy nights in the 60s and early 70s) plant is still going strong though

What are the pros? Very cool, Tastes great

What are the cons? None!

Review:

These are an awesome addition to the garden, and I highly recommend them if you have some extra space and like to experiment with some unique varieties. People love looking at these on the plant, and they taste great! The look exactly like they do in the pictures, starting off purple, then slowly transitioning to green then red. But most of them will keep a little bit of the purple/blue tint in some spots, which makes them great for giving away. There are more pictures on my blog of just how cool they look. Here's a link to that post: http://southerndone.com/2016/05/03/blue-berry-tomato-updatereview/ Bottom line, give these a shot!

Review:

We grew many tomatoes last year and this was my families favorite cherry tomato. The color is amazing. They start off green and purple and when ripe turn to a pinkish red and purple. Very pretty and flavorful tomato. I highly recommned these little tomatoes. They are great for children! Anything that is pleasing to the eye or a uniqe color gets kids trying new foods. I will be growing these again.

Prone to cracking in tropics
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Can withstand heavy rains

What are the cons? Cracks easily

Review:

When I transplanted it into the ground here we had very heavy rains in an already wet area of the Big Island this past fall. Now we are in a drought and the plant is producing quite heavily. The tomatoes are beautiful and tasty, but prone to cracking in high heat. The tomatoes are nice as a novelty, but cracking is always a problems for growing tomatoes on the Big Island due to our heavy rain/hot sun cycle, and this tomato has a high rate of splitting. My best luck with cherry tomatoes on the wet side of the Big Island has been the University of Hawaii Komohana grape tomato variety, with outstanding production with little to no splitting, and much greater productivity than the blue berry tomatoes.

What are the pros? Shape like a dark sweet cherry

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew these for the first time in Southwest Michigan. Awesome yield right thru first frost. Very firm tomato that gets sweeter as it ripens. Great for salads or market. If you like to grow different kinds of tomatoes then you should try this one. It will be a staple going forward. Harvest is challenging at first because they are purple early on. Key during harvest is to pay attention to the bottom side of the fruit. If it is still a bit green then it is still green! The fruit is ripe when it starts to turn pink or a mauve color on the bottom of the fruit. They grow in nice clusters just like the cherry tomatoes.
