What are the pros? prolific plant

What are the cons? description says determinate

Review:

Planted these on a whim. Got a little carried away in the spring after a long winter. Seeds sprouted ok, withstood me almost killing them a few times. Early in the season there were lots of tomatoes, and they were ripe before my siberian tomatoes. I wasn't so nuts about them at the beginning but now I can't get enough. The plants keep on growing and putting out more tomatoes, I bet they'll go on till the first frost. All the tomato plants at the community garden are dead from blight except for these. It's amazing, they keep on growing and outgrowing the blight. Maybe it's beginners luck but I'll definitely be planting these next year. Good for salads, drying, canning, making sauce. Just not big enough for BLTS!

What are the pros? Very tasty

What are the cons? Not determinate!

Review:

These are fabulous. I have around 20 of these plants growing this year. We could not get enough of them last year. I have many large clusters of fruit. These are extremely vigorous and I do not believe they are truly determinate. My plants are still growing at 6' tall and blooming & setting new fruit. I started harvesting ones and twos in early July and am now getting into the bigger harvests. I have harvested 3# of these this week... with tons more to come. These went into the ground mid-April, in a poly covered tunnel with a frost blanket to guard against our low overnight temps. We love these dried with the heirloom yellow pear tomatoes to put on pizzas, in sauces, etc. I've had very strong germination with these seeds, with no supplemental heat under them for germination. I germinate at room temp in my home under fluorescent lights.

What are the pros? Amazing flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

I didn't have a huge yield of these, unfortunately. I think i only ended up with one plant because some of my starts didn't make it. Its unfortunate because the flavor of the tomatoes I did get from that one little plant were so amazing. So good to eat raw and fresh. They tasted like a delicious homemade tomato soup. They were savory and didn't have any off flavors. When we would get a few, we would fight over them. Next time I will plant a whole bunch of these.

What are the pros? Most productive, delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

This variety has been, by far, the most productive (and delicious) variety of the many I planted this year. I'm writing this New Year's Eve day, having just harvested 30 delicious fruits from my one plant this morning. I planted it for "sun-dried" (actually oven-dried) tomatoes, but they are delicious in salads or out of hand as well. Perfect.

What are the pros? Hearty and plump

What are the cons? Hit and miss with plants.

Review:

I'll be planting these again. A few plants were just adequate and the other half of the plants went nuts! They ended up overflowing the growing areas and filling basket after basket upon picking. The sundried tomatoes are so tasty-- like candy!
