What are the pros? Beautiful color. Flavor
What are the cons? Early end rot. (maybe just me)
I raised 2 orange banana plants summer 2014. Both grew well with little to no disease to the plant. It was one of the first tomatoes (of 12 varieties) to ripen, but the first round had what appeared to be blossom end rot. Many of my first round cherry-sized tomatoes and my neighbor's cherry-sized tomatoes did the same. Next round to ripen was fine, maybe it was a weather/temperature thing. It also produced late into the season, being one of the last plants I pulled.
The color and shape is beautiful and unique. The flavor was probably my favorite of the year. I like a tomato with a nice "twang" to it. I dried some, used some in a mixed variety juice and salsas. I canned some as chunks (held together very well) and my favorite way to enjoy them.... slice the stem end off (very little core) slice them lengthwise, add a dash of salt and devour. Wonderful flavor!!!
