What are the pros? taste, look, condition
What are the cons? none
This was the best tomato that we grew last year and possibly our best tomato ever. A high end restaurant took every one that we gave them.
Initially, I picked them too early and the flavor wasn't as good. The flavor was best when they were allowed to fully ripen on the vine. Often I pick tomatoes before they are completely ripe, because I don't want them to crack. But compared to other tomatoes, Blush had very little cracking.
They were fantastic when dried, (but I think that yellow tomatoes in general are especially tangy and fruity when dried). Also, these tomatoes kept their good eating quality for a long like time (like a week or even two) after picking. Most heirloom tomatoes that we grow, peak in ripeness and then rapidly go bad. Finally, they looked beautiful and had good disease resistance.
I have tried many of Brad Gates tomatoes because I love the look of them, but for us the flavor hasn't been good. Next year I will try more of Fred Hempel's tomatoes.
