What are the pros? Germinated fast. Heavy Tomatoe
What are the cons? Really tested my patience.
Last day of summer. First Hungarian Heart tomato.
Now that I'm tasting the fruit of my labor I have softened my opinion of this one. These are sweet! She was tall and lanky even in March when she first emerged. First one to run up to the plant light and actually scorch herself outta nowhere. Her stem is nearly vine like. If I were to measure her its probably 7 feet long with lots of very heavy tomatoes and she's climbed on top of her neighbor's and then flopped on the ground next to them where she finally got all the sun she craved. She took forever to flower and I can't tell you how many times I almost yanked her out. But that one tomato probably would have cost the price of seeds, had I purchased it in a store. It is so heavy and solid. You could eat it like an apple and keep your clothes dry.
I do recommend them if you want to do fall canning or live in a place with a long growing season and lots of heat. If you only have space for 10 plants, be advised, this one wont be early.
Would you recommend this product to a friend?
