What are the pros? Easy to grow, tasty
What are the cons? Need more space than you think
2017 is the first year we are growing these but definitely saving seed for next year. The taste of these smallish tomatoes is just astounding. They do have a thicker skin as other people note but that seems to make them a bit more resilient to possible concerns. I have only found one fruit with a hole in it from something and only had 2 fruits suffer from blossom end rot.
We initially planted these in 3-gallon plant bags and had issues with keeping them watered enough. We ended up setting those bags in 5-gallon plant bags with a layer of vermiculite to keep moisture in. This seems to have saved the plants when it got really hot. Next year though will just start with larger bags or pots.
We started 7 plants to transplant 4 ourselves and gave away 3. The ones we gave away were grown on balconies and such and doing very well so these are very versatile tomatoes. They do tend to get taller rather than bushier so may use bamboo instead of cages next year.
