What are the pros? Great flavor
What are the cons? No uniformity.
While these are a tasty tomato, they are not a very "efficient" tomato. Most were unusable as a slicing tomato, and much was lost when cutting up for canning as well. Green ones were wonderful for fried green tomatoes. We used these in our market garden. These were incredibly hard to sell at Farmers Markets, and hard to find ones that were "pretty" enough to sell there as well. I will never do them for a market garden again, but for a home garden I would grow them every year due to the flavor! We also found that these tomatoes had bad spots in the crevasses. As well as finding that many of them grew as a single tomato but ripened as two, i.e. half would be red and the other half would be hard and green.

What are the cons? None
These are my husband's and my favorite tomato. They are delicious. They are great for fresh eating, sauce and juice.
This is a tomato I will grow every year. I highly recommend it for its deep tomato flavor.

What are the cons? Blossom end rot
I thought I had done something wrong re: BER -- but glad to find others that suffered similarly! Also grew Cour di Bue, also suffered BER. I guess these heirlooms need MORE calcium than normal! I will plant again next year, but in addition to favorite standbys Amish Paste and Opalka!
What are the pros? Polific
What are the cons? none
I gave this tom a second chance this year. This time I allowed only one leader on a string. I also added bone meal, epsom salt, compost, aspirin, fish head in the hoe before planting. It gave me a lot of fruits with less acidity than last year's crop. Fruit did not mind the 100 degree heat and ripen anyway. It is still producing fruits even when Paul Robeson has quit on me . Grew more than 7 feet . Highly recommended!!!

What are the pros? DELICIOUS

Did not grow well in CA zone 9B. That said it is one of the most delicious, and flavorful tomato I have ever had.
