What are the pros? Large, Super Flavor, Prolific
What are the cons? none
I've grown this variety for about 10 years now. This year I must have got everything right. The vines are so huge and loaded with tomatoes that the cage/supports are coming apart. These plants, 2, are over 10 ft. tall and 4 ft wide. So far between these two plants and 2 Cherokee Purple, all from Baker Creek Seeds, I've harvested over 100 lbs of tomatoes and they've only been in production for about 3 weeks. The delicious are averaging a pound each or more. Fantastic flavor to go along with size. I owe everything I know about tomatoes to Charles Wilber who holds the guinness book of world records for the most pounds of tomatoes grown from one vine, 340 something lbs. I will be more than happy if I get 340 lbs off of all 4 of my plants. Large temp swings seem to ruin the pollination process. I had some catfacing early on but it's disappearing now and my crop is beautiful. Good luck to all you tomato growers. Thank You Baker Creek.
