What are the pros? Best tasting tomato this year

What are the cons? Not many fruit


What I really love about this tomato is that it is much shorter than all my other tomatoes. All the rest have grown way over their cages and require staking which I do with bamboo but never am able to keep up with and as result have many plants folding over on themselves. This bush is incredibly bushy and only about 4 feet tall... every other variety is at least 6-8 feet tall. They exceeded all my expectations in the taste department. My husband and I agree they are better than the Cherokee purple and the large barred boar which usually are our favorite tasting. They were prone to some deep cracking but this year was a hot drought followed by a torrential week long rain. The cracks did not leak and go bad like the Cherokee purple though. I will be growing again next year while other tomatoes are getting the ax (yellow pear and German lunchbox, the atomic grapes are replacing the German lunchbox).
