What are the pros? Fantastic taste, big slicer
What are the cons? Long maturity time
This has been the best tasting tomato I have had since moving from the east coast.
I grew this via the Kratky hydroponic method using Masterblend nutrients. The plant absolutely thrived in this setup.
12/24 - I started it from seed inside
2/14 - Moved it into a 18 gal tote on wheels & took outside (r hardening off & bringing inside at night for about first 10 days).
5/3 - First tomato
The plant got knocked over about 3 weeks ago w/ 35 mph wind gusts. I think it was on its side for a couple of hours (w/o any nutrients) before I caught it. The plant has struggled ever since (I had to get into water right away & straight Phoenix tap water is very hard). But - the fruit that had set before it fell - is still coming along & ripening up. It still has about 8 tomatoes on it ripening up (It breaks my heart to think of all the blossoms that were lost from the Great Fall).
I'll be growing a ton more of this variety.
