What are the pros? Big cluster when they grow

What are the cons? Did not get a good

Review:

These tomatoes did not come close to the look in the catalog. They maybe got a orange brown with a hint of purple. Most importantly the taste was bland. Could very well be that it was too hot in Southern California to get the best out of the tomato. They also take a long time to ripen. Much longer than the other varieties i grew along side of these.

What are the pros? Pretty tomato, very yummy

What are the cons? none

Review:

In the high desert, one always wonders how well things will grow. We are in zone 7, Albuquerque. I had no trouble sprouting seed indoors. Plants transplanted well, had two in the ground. One inexplicably died, not sure why (possibly a misapplication of Roundup?) a "mortgage lifter" tomato, also one of two of that variety, also died--the other one has taken off and is producing well despite 90 heat. I would not call them cherry tomatoes, I would call them plum tomatoes. They're very sweet and flavorful. My wife insists that we should grow these every year she likes them so much--she won't have to twist my arm too hard, I like them too. The one that survived is surviving despite brutal heat. In the same watering/heat/rain conditions as the Mortgage Lifters and Cherokee Black (purple?), the Brad's Atomic did not split or get attacked by slugs, both of which conditions have destroyed about 2/3 of my Mortgage Lifters and Cherokee Black's.

What are the pros? Interesting, tastes great

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I accidentally planted too many of these because I didn't label my winter sowing jugs, but these are the only plants that survived the method AND the garden. Out of like 7 plants, I havent gotten too many, maybe a handful at a time, but they do keep producing. Every other week I might be able to pick 4-7 tomatoes, so I'd have more plants if this is what you want. The color is awesome and they're ripe when you can see strips of yellow or red. The flavor was a nice intense tomato. I fed them Neptune's harvest once a week in June and July. I might not grow these again only because my garden is so small, I was really hoping for bigger or more.

Review:

these are so sour, here in san mateo, CA , that not even the birds will eat them. They look good, don't seem to ripen, have a nice purple and green color, and taste horrible, Very tall plant, lots of useless fruit.

What are the pros? Colors, sets fruit easily

What are the cons? Inconsistent, chaotic growth

Review:

I love these and will totally grow them again. I was worried they'd just be for visual appeal and not have much taste, but they're some of the tastiest tomatoes in my garden - more complexity than most and a bit different. I'm particularly impressed by this given that my land just doesn't get much sun, so in general I can't grow things that produce a lot of sugar, but these still have done well. They've also set fruit more consistently than many of my other varieties - I hadn't realized how much manual pollination is necessary here now. My san marzanos hardly set at all without help; peacevines and candyland did okay; but sungold, atomic grape, and vernissage (the latter two from this site) set quite well without help. My only complaint is their growth habits, and that's pretty minor. The seedlings were highly variable in how well they got going, plus mature plants keep trying to branch at every leaf, usually more than once, making training more work.
