What are the pros? Tastes like a real tomato
What are the cons? subject to mildew but survives
My favorite cherry tomato of all time (and I've tried dozens over the years). If any tomato has a cult following, it's this one - and well earned. We had a humid summer this year and most of my plants suffered from powdery mildew, and this was no exception. Was also struck with hornworm and white fly. But I cut back heavily and it came back with abandon. There's nothing I could do to stop this plant, even if I wanted to. In fact, it is a first producer every year because of all the volunteers I have (which are completely neglected and produce like crazy). Don't get me wrong; they're not the littering type like the sweet 100s, etc., that leave loads of toms all over the ground These stay on the plant until I can't wait any longer and pluck them off. I try to hold out until they're a light purpley black but it's hard to wait. They're great even with a little green on the shoulders. If you like a tomato that tastes like a tomato (versus a sugar cube), this is the cherry for you.
