What are the pros? Flavor, size, tenacious plants
What are the cons? Very prone to cracking
Does extremely well here in the Virginia mountains, growing to five feet rapidly in spite of all the conflicting, pendulum-swings of weather lately. The first tomatoes starting ripening last week and are probably the most delicious tomatoes I've ever had. Most fruit that set so far have turned out to be an easy minimum of eight ounces, with most being well over a pound and being over four inches in diameter. The germination rate was also a pleasant surprise. I started 32 of the seeds I received this spring and somehow 39 plants came of them! The variety seems like it deserves its disease-resistant reputation since even with the extreme wet weather events I've so far lost only two plants to fungal issues and there's no sign of blight showing up even this far into the summer. The plants themselves are very stout and sturdy and held up in a derecho this June (which makes sense if they have to hold up those massive tomatoes!), so I'm definitely going to keep growing these.
