What are the pros? All meat high yeild
What are the cons? Plant won't die.
Don't be fooled by the slow cold frame growth rate as they will be first to produce. Early harvest is small in size with vine and tomatoes growing in size as season progresses. They ripen fast off the vine, so pick red and firm if your going to can up to four days out. Tender skins require a one level transport from field to kitchen to keep them from getting crushed if you have lots to transport. Does well in hard dry soil so long as you portion water consistent every day in hot weather to prevent blistering for healthy tomatoes you will be proud to give away. Once going they won't die. Plants will die with up to 10 mature tomatoes on vine not for consumption as late season weather can black spot the skins. I plant with black plastic and (5% of recommended solution of Miracle Grow per gallon of water) every day. This year I will try a black netting to shade plants on hottest days of the year and to repel soaker storms that can flood roots and blemish skins.
