What are the pros? strong vines prolific pretty

What are the cons? very thick wall, taste is meh

Review:

I grew these in containers along with other strains (15 total). Pork Chop results: the vines were strong and produced well over a dozen per plant, they were resistant to cracking and disease--endured a bout of early blight, and resisted as others were felled--, the fruits had beautiful stripes on them throughout their growth cycle, and watching them turn yellow was really cool. I was excited to bite into my first one and well, taste wasn't really what I'd hoped for. I was expecting something akin to Green Zebra crossed with Dixie Golden Giant, but alas, the taste just wasn't there. I guess Brad and I disagree on the best yellow. The locular cavity is pretty significant and has lots of dead space, the walls (thick) and the septa are somewhat bland and pretty tough, the placenta/seeds/jelly are by far the best parts of this tomato. Will not grow again, and will continue my search for a great yellow.

What are the pros? heat tolerant, very productive

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is surely a winner. I can recommend growing this in as sunny and hot a well drained spot that you can find (try planting on a 16"h mound if your soil is heavy). Give it even watering. Our temps for the past two weeks have been 95F and as high as 104F. The plants are green and vigorous and production is heavy and fruit is perfect without any defects. I've grown over 50 specialty tomato varieties over the past three years and this may be the very best. Beautiful and delicious too. Doesn't get any better than this.

What are the pros? no bland, great tasting

What are the cons? none

Review:

Vallejo has cool summers as we get the fog coming through the Golden Gate. I don't plant tomatoes until late May. I am unable to grow green zebra tomatoes most years but Pork Chop produced very well. It was the best large yellow tomato I have ever grown. Hilary Miller

What are the pros? Flavor, flesh, color

What are the cons? production

Review:

Absolutely delicious- a few cracked on me but for the most part they were beautiful. The plant didn't produce many- maybe 20- and that is the one downside but I will still plant this one!
