What are the pros? appearance, flavor, production
What are the cons? cracking on some individuals
out of 14 different tomato varieties, Dark Galaxy was the only variety to show blossom end rot, but production was still heavy! Might be our abnormally cold spring temps? Lots of variation in size of fruit and amount of flecking on skin, but anthocyanin production was consistent on fruit exposed to direct sunlight. With 2 plants grown in the exact same "hole," despite very careful irrigation practices, one plant had all the fruit split (before ripening) while the other plant didn't have any cracking whatsoever! Definitely recommended to grow out a few plants to get the best expressions, but if all you care about is flavor, Brad has that locked in: all of my plants tasted great! However, it will taste watery/bland if you irrigate too often when ripening, definitely requires the right conditions for best flavor. Highly recommended to give this one a shot for the appearance alone, what a masterpiece!
