What are the pros? Large quanity per plant
What are the cons? Thick leaves/ Vines
We're on the 7b/8a growing zone boarder. I started these seeds very early in my greenhouse, about mid January. Once transplanted in late April they took off. They were blooming by early May and I had to hand pollinate for a couple weeks before the pollinators really showed up. It's early June and I've already picked 2 early ripeners. The rest of the plants are loaded and will be giving us more very shortly.
Due to humidity we try the prune extra vines and greenery from our tomatoes to help with air circulation and reduce fungal issues and blight. I have to prune these often. Tons of thick leaves. I do fertilzer with some fish emulsion but give these plants tons of egg shell and bone meal as well. I've pulled about 5 tomatoes with blossom end rot. No big deal though as there are easily 50 tomatoes per plant.
Plus the taste is wonderful. These will be great in salsa.
