What are the pros? Great for cooking
What are the cons? Blossom end rot
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.
