Best drying tomato there is

What are the pros? Productive, prolific, YUM!

What are the cons? NONE!

Review:

If you like dried tomatoes, whether you sun dry, oven dry or dehydrate, there is simply no tomato in existence that can compare to Principe Borghese. Provide ample trellising for these prolific plants, as well as enough room the following year to plant at least twice as many the after you fall in love with them. They're so amazing and productive you'll be handing out jars to people you like for Christmas and hoarding the rest for yourself while trying to amass and invent recipes using dried tomatoes! Start them early and get them out in the garden as soon as you can because when they start cranking out fruit they will keep going until fall. If you only have room on a balcony for one pot, plant these. I haven't tried them hanging, but I would imagine they'd work well for that too. Seriously, they are the best drying tomato you can grow.

What are the pros? Garden candy!

Review:

Grew these from seed in 2018 and am doing it again for 2019 -- only doubled the number of plants this year! Started seeds indoors on heat mats and under grow lights; then added an oscillating fan after the seeds sprouted. Hardened off, then transplanted outdoors in early May. These are tomatoes are like "garden candy". Wonderful dried, but also terrific when skewered as shish-kabobs. Grilling really enhances the flavor.
