My fence of Cream Sausages gave me a huge harvest this spring, and then another bumper fall crop. I highly, highly recommend this versatile and delicious tomato. I used them cooked, raw, oven-roasted, and dried, in everything from sauces to soups to salads. They were as sweet tasting or sweeter than any other variety I grew, including Black Krim, C. Genovese, Black Cherry, and T. des Conores. I've also found the Cream Sausage vines to be more compact and more mannerly than many of my other tomatoes. Most of the other tomato vines overshot the tops of their 6 foot tall trellises by midsummer and are now dangling over and down in all directions. The Cream Sausage plants still haven't quite reached the top of their five foot wire fence (and yet every plant is covered with more fruit than most of those monster vines). I'll also note that the light color of this tomato is an advantage when it comes to bird damage: you can let your tomatoes ripen on the vine without worrying that the birds will find them before you do. The one thing you must watch out for on this variety is blossom end rot, which in the heat and drought of a North Texas summer I had some problems with. If they have enough water, these tomatoes naturally get very long with an elegant drip-end, but many of my spring crop had snubbed off ends with a little brown scar. The fall crop, though, has been long and elegant and unscarred almost to a fruit--cooler, moister weather plus more established plants, I think.
