What are the pros? Flavor, easy to grow, prolific
What are the cons? Long time to mature
These seeds came as a free sample, so I tried them. This year I was finally successful at growing tomatoes from seed, including Gypsy, Better Boy, Juliette and Ildi. I harvested my first Gypsy this morning and it was great. Small, but was one of the first tomatoes on this plant down near the bottom. Good old fashioned tomato flavor, slightly sweet. Flesh a bit mushy, but as I said, first one. The plant itself is about 6 feet tall and has lots of tomatoes. There are some large ones as well, about 3 1/2 inches in diam. and tomatoes in all stages from beginning to ripen to blossoms and everything in between. Branches had to be tied to gutter downspout because heavy laden with fruit. Gave a 3 rating on early maturity since 135 days from seed planting to harvesting 1st tomato, but Better Boy's only 14 days ahead, and Juliette and Ildi (both grape varieties) are still green. Our soil here is nutrient poor, fine sand; most veggies take longer to mature; also HOT and humid, so planted early.
