What are the pros? early; taste; can be prolific
What are the cons? cherry-size, and not bigger
I grew these in 2016 from seeds I got from Baker Creek in December, 2015. I saved seeds and am growing a plant from those, this year (2017). Here are my experiences: In 2016, the plant was very small, and was the earliest variety to set fruit of about 100 tomato varieties (I transplanted in May and had brown fruit at the end of June or so). Taste was good. The fruits were very small (cherry-sized). I got about 10 to 15 fruits, and they were all early. They were brown, but I probably ate them all before they got too ripe. The taste was kind of like Paul Robeson, but much milder. The plant got smothered by other tomatoes, eventually, but it didn't seem to be growing much. In 2017, The plant grew much larger and grew lots of fruit (I think it appreciated the acclimatization). While it wasn't my earliest variety of ~100 it was still one of the first few to change its final color. The fruits tasted different, and more potent. I let some fully ripen, and they tasted amazing, and super sweet!
