What are the cons? small harvest, stunts tomatoes
Wow..where to start. This vegetable is amazing one of the best that I have ever tired. I was very excited about these seeds from the very beginning. First thing to note is the germination rate is very low, no biggie there was a ton of seeds in the pack. Planted about 60 seeds in 3-4 a hole directly on the ground. About 20 took off, around the 34% germination stated. Taste wise, this is my new favorite. Its a little intensive to prep but worth every bit of it. I cooked mine in a pan with white onion, garlic, terragon, and olive oil and cooked it on low for about 2 hours (way overkill but I had the time). Simply amazing...
I read online that it is better to harvest small (golf ball size) opposed to large (softball size). I harvested 2x about the size of a golf ball and 2x about 3". Of the four they all tasted sweet. There was very little difference. The small tasted slightly more sweet/subtle. Im going to grow one to about 4" now to compare flavor. You only get one per plant after all!
