What are the pros? Unique appearance
What are the cons? Odd flavor
I've had great luck with orange tomatoes, so I thought I'd try these. They do look just like the photo! Neighbor asked why it was black on top.
Mine were in a new raised bed garden, so I don't know if soil affected this, but the flavor was a bit off- only a few of the ones I ate had the sweet home-grown flavor I was looking for.
The yield was mediocre, compared to previous types of tomatoes I've grown in the past- not really a problem since I normally have too many. They really stick to the vine, many of them had an oblong shape that curls around the stem. More than once I pulled off a whole stem of ripe through green tomatoes. Leave them on longer and they crack and attract bugs.
Between the lower yield and weird flavor, I think I'll try something else next year.
