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.

What are the pros? Flavor was good, was pretty

What are the cons? Couldn't tell when Ripe!

Review:

The flavor was good but since the color stayed purple from beginning to end and they were rather firm, I couldn't tell if they were ripe until they became mushy and cracked. They were producing rather well so there were always new, unripe fruits and thus the problem.

What are the pros? Very easy to grow.

What are the cons? Taste.

Review:

This cherry tomato is very interesting. They grew great in my garden. I planted six plants and had enough little tomatoes to feed a small village. I know its strange but, I would compare their flavor to that of unsweetened chocolate.

These were the best tomatoes ever! My entire family loved them. I had great germination and they were the sweetest tomatoes I've ever eaten. Def will be growing them again this year and everyone who stopped by and tasted them will be too.
