What are the pros? Candy... tomato candy

What are the cons? cracking

Review:

These take a little care, they are a LARGE plant and need fence posts or serious caging. They will come in late in your season unless you start them early and are a slave to uppotting them a few times (not many can handle a 5 gallon pail or 7 gallon nursery pot until plantout). I am in a high desert and altitude so afternoon shade (thanks to a big tree) and misting when temps go above 85, and stopping it a few hours before sundown so plants dry out.... I can get 20 or so fruit over a pound and another 20 or so in 12-16 oz range. They will crack on top but that is water after they are turning ripe and just cut that slice off. I find they go good at Farmer Market IF you sacrifice a few and use the toothpicks and let someone have a taste. To me they taste like tomato-candy. I don't like a raw tomato usually but I'll eat these raw. Hornworms, I get a few, these aren't the only ones that get some.

What are the pros? Not full of tomato "goo"

What are the cons? Skin cracks before mature

Review:

First I have to say I don't like tomatoes ,but these I eat. Average size of fruit was 1 1/2 lbs each and I had 58 on only 2 plants. To avoid the skin splitting I pull them off before they are totally ripe. I thought these were so great I spent $10.85 to mail just 2 of them to my Mom in Florida to convince her they were the best tomatoes ever, she agreed.

What are the pros? Tasty, Dependable, Versatile

What are the cons? Often Cracked or Misshapen

Review:

I grow Brandywine every year. They taste great, have a lovely smooth texture and have always produced well for me. I use them primarily for slicing and eating alone, but also for sauce and juice. That being said, they are very prone to cracking and are sometimes strangely shaped. My 10-year old says that some of them look like brains. I don't recommend them for a market tomato, but for simple, down-home flavor, they can't be beat.

What are the pros? Amazing taste, Large Fruit

What are the cons? Susceptible to Everything!

Review:

These are easily the best tasting tomatoes I have ever eaten! They produce very large fruit. That is, when I can manage to keep them alive that long. I have grown them for 3 years and the are the most difficult to get to planting size alive when started indoors and the first to get blight and other diseases once outside. They are even the only plants I found tomato horn worms on this year even though they are interplanted with several other varieties. Could be a coincidence, but it seems unlikely. I will mention that I do not use any chemicals on my plants, including organic ones, so these problems may be solved with the use of them. It could also be that they just don't do well in this area. I won't be planting them again, although I will miss the amazing tomatoes.
