What are the pros? Pleated!,very few bugs/rot
What are the cons? none, but not for all purposes
I love my Gezahnte tomatoes. So beautiful and pleated with great insect and disease resistance. Heavy fruit set as well. I made spaghetti sauce with all of my various varieties of tomatoes and whenever I would pick up one of these to de-seed and get ready for roasting I knew it would be satisfying-- large size and little to throw away. They are somewhat hollow and have much less juice than beefsteak types. The seeds are also contained neatly in a sack that looks like a brain (so my kids said :6). Nice firm flesh, good flavor and one of our biggest garden successes. Not as juicy on your sandwich as other varieties, but really beautiful when those pleats are sliced. Along with "Abe Lincoln" (from another company) and "Big Beef VFFNTA" these were our best varieties this year and we will continue to grow them. I grow many varieties and "Best varieties" for us changes, but these have 3 years of success for us.
