What are the pros? Flavor, color, shelf llife
What are the cons? Needs an early head start
Grew these plants last summer, I start many of my seeds early and did the same with these. I planted the seeds mid-February and am starting mid-January this year. The plants produced lots of fruit in various colors, but almost did not ripen in time. This summer was a shorter growing season with late frost in the Spring and an early frost in the Fall, but took longer than 70 days to maturity.
The shelf life on this tomato was amazing though! We picked most in Sept and were eating tomatoes into the end of October. They had a month long shelf life with proper cool (50-60 degree) storage. I did have a few rot, but most held out and still tasted great.
