What are the pros? Easy to grow, pretty
What are the cons? Flavor, thick skins
Each year I trial a couple of new tomato varieties, and purchased this seed based on the many good reviews. This variety didn't meet my standards as a keeper, so I won't be growing them again. These were easy to grow, and pretty in the garden, although much attention needed to be paid to staking. However, I was not a fan of the bland flavor for fresh eating, and the skins were very thick and unpleasant on the tongue. The thick skins and lobes also made these difficult to blanch and peel for canning, and the flesh didn't hold up well, turning to mush in the jars. I'll be sticking to my San Remo tomatoes for canning and cooking.
