Review:

This is my 2nd year growing CP. I'm actually growing more than what I planted this year. Something I learned:When critters enjoy your tomato toss it where you will plant your tomatoes next year. Because they will grow the following year. I have dozens of CP (and Amish Paste) growing throughout my garden from them composting. What's interesting is my volunteer CP (and AP) ripen long before this years. I'm freezing most of them to roast and turn into marinara sauce. Omg that was so good!!! Superb slicing tomatoes but great for roasted marinara sauce. It really brings out that smoky flavor.

Review:

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.

What are the pros? Great taste, prolific, yum.

What are the cons? cracks easily

Review:

Super tasting tomato. Produces well. Great for juicing, salsa, stewed, but best for a sandwich. They do crack if too much rain or over-watering. I do container gardening using cheap store bought potting soil mixed with compost and worm castings. My containers are 8-gal black pots and the plants do well in this size for me. I did have to stake or use tall cages. Started pruning a few years ago and I have seen a remarkable difference in fruit size, production and fewer problems with disease. I'm going to try to cross with Arkansas Traveler to see what I come up with. Hoping for the great flavor of the CP and crack resistance of the AT. We shall see in a few years what these will do.
