What are the pros? Deep, rich flavor
What are the cons? A bit more work
I grew two plants this year and had as many little gems as one person could keep up with. The flavor is just stunning - they have the rich, sweet depth of slow-roasted tomatoes right off the vine. They handle drought and water issues well, mature very early, and keep producing all summer long. The vines do become vast and sprawling; foolishly, I planted them with my smaller tomato cages, and they completed overwhelmed them and ran wild across the grass. Next year I'm going to try trellising them or wrapping them around the cages. Caveats: it's easy to damage the top of the tiny fruit when picking, so pick with a delicate hand and pop any damaged fruit in your mouth. :) They are considerably more effort per pound than larger tomatoes, as they take a great deal more picking. They are absolutely worth it! Adding a couple of handfuls to spaghetti sauce imparted a wonderful flavor.
