Review:

Very disappointed. Out of 5 varieties of tomatoes that I grew this year, this was the first to germinate, grew the fastest, first to set bloom, and is very productive. The fruit are beautiful and uniform and the plants are very hardy. However,.....they are completely devoid of flavor. They taste just like a store bought tomato :( Very bland/very tasteless. I give it 5 stars on ease of growing and 2 for taste. It's not that they taste bad.....just that they have no flavor at all. So, if I salt it and throw a lot of dressing on it it is certainly edible. That being said, the Arkansas Traveler and Black Mauri that I planted are now just as big and productive and vastly superior in taste. Next year, I will stick with those two.

What are the cons? not heat tolerant enough

Review:

I have a shade vegetable garden in zone 9. The spring/summer tomato season gives me the max of 6 hrs/day. The summer/fall season loses daylight until November when we get four hours max. The floradades did better in the second growing season despite more rain and lack of full sun. The fruit was deep red and quite tasty like an old fashioned homegrown tomato. My fruit seldom gets as large as advertised because of lack of sunshine. They did not fair well in the spring/summer season as the heat and humidity crushed them. I will try "homestead" tomatoes next time under recommendation.

Review:

This variety did well here in the Florida panhandle. It produced lots of uniform, tasty fruit. The flesh was firm but juicy. I'll grow it again.

Review:

Grew one of these in a whiskey barrel planter on my deck. It required some staking but did not get too large. Produced lots of nice round 4 - 6 ounce fruits. Very happy with this and will grow more next year. Tolerates the Georgia heat very well.
