Review:

I grew these in the 2018 season. The flavor was one the best I've ever had for a purple-brown type tomato - sweet, smokey, everything desired in a tomato. A big however is that the yields were very low and this variety seem to attract tons of stink bugs. We've had several wet summers in Upstate, NY and this has made made this type and my Black Krims prone to cracking so just be aware, these can crack. If it wasn't for the low yield and stink bugs, I'd probably grow again but alas I'm a container gardener and it's simply not worth the real estate. I'll stick to Black Krims only for now.
