What are the pros? Bold flavor, juicy, delicious
What are the cons? Some late blight
This tomato was absolutely delicious fresh, cooked, and anything in between. We made caprese salads with these tomatoe, slicing them nice and thick with some fresh mozzarella, aged balsamic, EVOO, and a little salt. We could plate up enough caprese for our guests, they loved these tomatoes! We also canned them to add some sweetness to a soup or sauce, not to mention the color!
Some notes on growing: I noticed that these tomatoes did not seem to like excessive heat and direct sunshine when temps were over 80-85, so consider a shade cloth for part of the day if you get higher temps in your area. Our community garden did get hit quite hard by late blight and everyone's tomatoes suffered an earlier than expected death. The tomatoes that were on the vine already seemed to hold up well enough to mature through the blight, but some didn't make it through and we missed out on quite a few delicious tomatoes.
