What are the pros? Hardy, big, productive
What are the cons? A little unruly
I have 30 in my garden. They were started indoors a month early (first week of may). Harvesting just started yesterday. Three months from seed to harvest, not bad for a tomato. I pruned them back to the main stem when abut 18 inches tall. I did not stake or cage them. Whish I did a little. They are a bit viney, and heavy spreading. They sprawl and crawl with lots of branches. The entire plant is four to five feet long, but with lots of long branches. I trained them to grow somewhat straight, parellel with each other like I do with my cucumbers. If I didn't, the whole bed would be a tangled jungle. They produce very consistent sized friut. Ripen two or three weeks earlier than my beefsteaks. The friut are nicely round and don't split like beefsteaks. When fully fipe, they are soft and juicey. Flavor simular to other black tomatoes. A very full and meaty, but soft tomato. I will try them out at market next summer.
