What are the pros? Healthy, very heavy producer

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was a perfect choice for my East Texas sand. They need very consistent water to avoid blossom end rot. Heavy producer and absolutely delicious for sauces. Did very well for me at market. This year I'll try drying some.

What are the pros? Dry soil

What are the cons? Over watering

Review:

Well, I gave these tomatoes the old college try. This is my second year trying to grow them right. They do NOT like much water. My advice...water them daily till the 4th of July then just do the deep root watering once a week...maybe even less. Mine did better the more I neglected them. Mine had blossom end rot! Grrr. That being said...I managed to salvage a ton of them and made quarts upon quarts of the most delicious marinara sauce...enough sauce to last till next summer! So....just beware of their issues and don't plant them with anything else that needs to be watered daily.

What are the pros? Very productive

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is a great tomato. It was a late year for putting in garden because of spring weather conditions and it has been a dry summer again this year. All varieties tomato in our garden were behind. These plants were very productive. Off the 12 plants in our garden, we have about 20 quarts frozen whole, and nine 4 oz. tubs of very thick tomato paste. We mixed them with slicing tomatoes and have about 8 quarts of cooked crushed tomatoes. We have cooked and eaten some too. The vines are dying back at the bottoms but they are still producing! We will raise these again next year.

What are the pros? Great for cooking

What are the cons? Blossom end rot

Review:

I love these except that they get blossom end rot in my garden (other tomato varieties do not). My soil is heavy clay and I have tried for three years now to get these to grow successfully. No luck, I always lose at least half of the fruit and what I do get are very small fruit that often have traces of rot inside when I cut them open. I wish this were not the case because they make the best dried tomatoes I've ever had. If you know you have calcium rich soil, these are the tomatoes for you. They just aren't working out for me.
