What are the pros? love the deep black color
What are the cons? cracks easily
Really was excited to grow this for the first time. Beautiful purple tinged plants. Fruit looks gorgeous.
Plants were really vigorous. Fruit set well, but not as heavily as my Dark Galaxy. Be consistent with your watering and don't over water this one, as it cracks very easily. Experienced growers should do really well with this one.
Fruit is ripe when some red begins to show on the blossom end. Seemed to take longer to ripen than the other tomatoes that I grew, but worth the wait. Made the mistake of picking many to early, only to find green flesh.
My soils are heavy clay that I did not amend. Will grow again next year with amended soils and heavier duty trellising.
