What are the pros? Prolific, fun, stores well
What are the cons? Can't decide about flavor
Seedlings germinated easily but slowly. Planted out with peppers. Used commercial "tomato cages" for support, which worked perfectly. First fruit ripened same time as first tomatoes. The husks turn brown and drop, making it easy to harvest. For best flavor, let sit for a week inside after gathering. Off two plants, I'm getting a quart in the husks twice a week (about 1 cup husked). Only reservation is flavor. They are sweet, with a firm cherry tomato texture. I taste vanilla and pineapple, but there is a hint of tomato flavor too. Some people love these, my husband finds the texture and tomato flavor offputting in such a sweet fruit. I have made a dessert sauce and included them in salsa with tomatoes to rave reviews. For out of hand eating, I enjoy 3-4 before tiring of them. Am currently dehydrating some to see how that is received.
Overall, a win.
