What are the pros? Looks, and feels like pepper
What are the cons? Blossom end rot is bad problem
The biggest problem with these are blossom end rot (BE rot). The rest of my tomato varieties showed no sign of BE rot, so this tells me that this variety is extremely susceptible to it, mainly because of the hallow centers. I added more miracle grow and that started getting some good size ones without it.
As anticipated they come out shaped like a pepper, have the feel and squishyness, and I picked one off that had early BE rot, but on the edge of turning ripe, cut it in half, and it is hallow with three chambers like a pepper. It has two small chambers and a large one so it kind of has a mickey mouse shape.
But going against the old saying "If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck...". This is no pepper. Yes I cut off the BE rot, and took a taste test. Just like Bill Clinton would say, I bit but did not swallow... Lol. And it taste like a tomato.
