What are the pros? Good production; nice sized
What are the cons? Germination percentage lowish
Started indoors a couple months before late spring planting. Was aiming to grow one of these this year with one plant coming up out of 3 seeds planted. Bit low germination so I'll be seeding heavier per plant desired next year to be on the safe side.
I'll have to say this tomato did best in my garden this year out of the few larger sized tomato types I tried. Plant got nice and stocky near 5ft tall (in large cage) with good production. Tomatoes are on the larger size than I had expected and attractive/uniform looking.
First starting ripening this past week. Seems you may need to let them ripen a bit more than outside appearance would dictate or else they'll be a bit pale yet inside. I'd assume this has to do with it's long storing properties. Using mine for salsa at the moment so I kept ripening morrow's among other ripened tomatoes to hasten the ripening process. Tomatoes had nice thick walls inside without too much juice making them work well for salsa. Storage life will see yet.
