What are the pros? great yield, canning, flavor
What are the cons? yellow shoulder
I have grown this variety for 4 years in a row. Every year this is my first to ripen and my last to stop producing. The tomatoes are huge and meaty. I've had a few at 2 lbs and every year many over 1 lb but most over or around hald of a lb. These tomatoes come in all shapes and sizes, from heart shaped, round, typical heirloom shape.This makes the best flavored sauce. This year I have already picked 170 lbs from 6 plants and they are still producing. They are also tasty for salsa or slicing.
After growing these for 4 years I've found the plants seem to be prone to yellow shoulder and blossom end rot. Just make sure to fertilize through out the growing season and add extra epsom salt.
