What are the pros? fast grower, prolific
What are the cons? inconsistent genetics, sour
This plant is prolific to the point of being aggressive. Due to this, I had high hopes for the fruit. But there were two issues. First, the "red" variety is far too sour, even if we let it ripen to a maroon color. Second, the packet of seeds either had a mixup or some genetic variation, because some of them ripened to yellow instead of red. Maybe some "golden blue berries" got mixed in?
Even though some people may see this as a strike against the seed supplier, I am grateful that I got a little variation, because a few of my "golden blue berries" are equally aggressive plants that ripen to a milder sweet yellow blue fruit.
I might also try this as a rootstock. It keeps shading out my other tomato plants and it's unfair to them.
