What are the pros? Amazing flavor!
What are the cons? Judge ripeness by squeezing
I grew 31 varieties of tomato in 2016: some new, some old heirloom standbys. I picked up a packet of Emerald Apple at the 2015 National Heirloom Expo, just because it was there. I wasn't fond of green tomatoes because I hadn't found one that had a distinctive flavor. This changed everything. Out of all 31 varieties, this one had the absolute best depth and tang. They were good-sized but not beefsteak, so they matured in more than enough time in my short growing season. Fruit hung long on the vine, which was good because you have to recognize a golden sheen to know when they're actually ripe. They're not as stunning as some, which worked in my favor because everyone wanted all the pretty, striped new types and left the Emerald Apple tomatoes all to me!

What are the pros? Beautiful color, flavorful
What are the cons? Small crop
Never had I tried a ripe green tomato before and to my surprise it may just be my #1 favorite now. First to ripen I collected 3 fruits but the plant was reluctant to even flower again until fall. I will definitely give this one another try.

What are the pros? FLavor!
What are the cons? needs tomatos cages
These grew nicely in San Antonio. In spite of my own neglect, lack of tomato cages, and a historical hail storm that mortared my garden in the spring, a few of these plants survived and produced some of the tastiest tomatoes I have eaten. Next year I will plant more, and protect them with my life.
What are the pros? Taste and looks
What are the cons? low yield and disease prone
Delicious! Grew well in Los Angeles. Grown in containers. Produced delicious tomatoes. Out of 6 varieties that I was growing it wasn't the highest yielding one, but a nice addition to the group. They were the first to get mildew disease also. Not a bad variety but not the best.

What are the cons? none
We grew 18 varieties of tomatoes last year, and this is my overall favorite. It was easy to grow, did well (enough) in the high Texas temperatures, they are a gorgeous medium-large size tomato, it was a good producer, and the flavor was SO great. Because it's a green tomato it can be a little hard to tell when it's ripe, but this is one I will grow every year.
