What are the pros? Large plants, lots ot tomatoes
What are the cons? Slow ripening, flavor meh
I started these from seed in the spring with heat - germination was OK. (Which wsa good because there were so few seeds in the packet.)
Once planted out, plants grew sort of spindly (which I expected based on catalog/seed packet description.) Later they became much more robust. Plants growing in an Earthbox are 7-8 feet tall!
Plants were very slow to set fruit - not until July - but eventually put on lots of tomatoes in attractive clusters
Fruit is larger than expected (more like apricot size than grape; larger than Juliet, slightly smaller than plum tomatoes.)
I never really got the full technicolor effect - these are more like Green Zebra with black shoulders. Eventually the bottom turns orange-y with green stripes. (Some rotted on the vine because I couldn't tell they were ripe, interior still mostly green.)
Flavor also reminiscent of green zebra - more on the acid/tangy side, none have been especially sweet, texture frequently mealy.
Don't plan to grow them again.
