What are the pros? High yield
What are the cons? Too mushy, bland flavor
I have to admit, sadly, that this is my least favorite tomato this year (out of 12 heirloom varieties). The texture of the fruits is just not appealing to me at all. There is a very substantial amount of the gooey center tissue that holds the seeds, which takes up a disproportionate fruit volume, resulting in a rather mushy/jelly-like texture. The flesh itself (typically the good part) also seems to nearly disintegrate immediately upon ripening, so they are unpleasant to eat just a few days after picking. The flavor is also one of the most bland ones I've grown. The one good thing I can say is the skins are very thin so there is no need to peel them if you are going to cook them - which is pretty much the only way I found they were good (as tomato chutney). If you want a better cherry-sized tomato, try black cherry (http://www.rareseeds.com/black-cherry-tomato). And a MUCH tastier, more robust/fleshy green striped tomato is the Green Zebra!! http://www.rareseeds.com/green-zebra-tomato)
