What are the pros? Vigorous plants, great taste
What are the cons? Can't ripen fast enough for me
I've begun harvesting from my 8 plants and just love the love apple! I started seeds indoors and transplanted to the garden mid-May, 6 plants in the ground, 2 in a large container. All 8 plants are strong and vigorous growers. There are love apples galore on all the plants. I used blossom set during the hot spell to help keep flowers from withering-with mixed results. I've had no problem with diseases and just a few horn worms early in June. The vines are indeterminate and continue to flower. I guess I'm impatient when it comes to ripening, wanting the fruit to instantly turn color. And now that they have, I'm in tomato heaven with luscious, juicy, pink-red, perfect- for -slicing tomatoes. So far I've had tomato sandwiches with a variety of cheeses and have made raw tomato pasta sauce with garlic and basil from the garden. I'll be canning some in the next few days, after a tomato sandwich lunch! I recommend this variety. My old standby was AK Traveler, this is my new favorite!
