What are the pros? Taste, taste and taste
What are the cons? No dislikes whatsoever
I see what all the hype is about now. Excellent flavor, texture and appearance. The flavor is unique; acidic and sweet; vaguely salty and like other's have said, smokey. The flavor is rich and complex. I will always and forever have these in my garden. To say that this tomato is better than or as good as Brandywine is a misnomer because this is like comparing apples to oranges. Brandywine is just as complex as Robeson but the flavors are very different. As different as Green Zebra is from Golden Dixie. Time of picking is crucial to this variety. If picked a day or two too early, then you'll have an ordinary, good tomato. If you let the fruit become dead ripe then you will experience the magnificent complexity that is Paul Robeson. You'll have to experiment with picking them at different stages until you find that magical perfection period. You'll find that the trouble you go through in order to find that sweet spot is WELL worth the trouble. Check the Robeson's at least twice daily.
