What are the pros? Super heavy yields!
What are the cons? Bland taste and BER
This seedling went into the ground June 1st in my zone 6a garden and had set fruit by June 20th, and was the first tomato to ripen in my garden of 37 varieties, July 24th. The flavor had a hint of sweetness but was too bland and watery for my taste, however, this incredible plant didn't stop setting fruit during an unusual four week long hot spell averaging 93-105F degree daytime weather. It's now reaching 7' tall and still growing and setting new fruit. I lost count after 40 tomatoes, of which about half of them had BER. No amount of calcium would rectify the BER. Watering inconsistency wasn't the cause either as I have an timed irrigation system. I had two other different heart variety tomatoes also effected by BER. My beefsteaks and slicers were mostly uneffected by BER, so who knows?. Anyway, there are better heart tomato varieties out there! GRS may not be suited for my region or my particular soil. I have put this variety on my no grow list.
