What are the cons? temperamental
Short Review: Like most prized heirlooms, this one needs some time, energy, and attention. If you're able to give it those things, it's an amazing producer, and maybe my favorite all round steak tomato to eat by itself. If you can't give it what it needs, it falls apart.
Morado's is meant to be a prolific producer of large tomatoes, which is an extraordinary thing, so it needs extra help - like a race horse. Once it gets going, Morado throughs lots of flowers, fast. If there arn't enough nutrients and water to get all those flowers to set you'll get a lot of flower drop and BER on the fruit that does set, because it's going to spend what little nutrients it has on even MORE flowers. If you can overcome this, you'll be rewarded greatly.
Pruning and well prepared soil are essential, but that's true for all large tomatoes. I grow mine in Constant-Flood Dutch Buckets and now that it's warm, they don't mind.
