What are the pros? Makes large beautiful plants
What are the cons? cracking, slow to produce
I have never seen tomato plants grow to such a size. Our neighbors, who have been growing tomatoes for over 40 years, were beyond shocked. These things grew to over 6 ft tall. I had to use tent stakes and parachute cord to keep my cages from taking off with the plants. We used no fertilizer. Only some epsom salt every now and then. To be honest I have given up on my 24 plants. They are too big. My place looks like a jungle. Normal poles are use less. I had to buy huge fence poles in an attempt to keep these things up right. The tomatoes themselves can grow to be rather large but they split like crazy. I stopped watering them completely in an attempt to stop the cracking. Didn't work. I have gotten more tomatoes off 3 cheap plants someone was throwing out. I planted those a month after the Pink ones. I will say splitting was a rare problem. Taste was okay but nothing amazing. I did have to pick them early b/c of the cracking. I ended up throwing out over 50% of them.
