What are the pros? Productivity, pink color
What are the cons? flavor, weak plants
Lots of runts, but I was able to select and grow out a few decent plants early on. Plants produce an abundance of fruit, and the first few I tasted were sweet, but had a funky background flavor to it. Tried it several times throughout the season, flavor didn't improve: the aftertaste was horrendous, even during our weeks of heatwaves when most other tomato varieties were at their peak flavor. Had 13 other tomato varieties growing with exact same water and soil, many of which produced outstanding fruit. Some tomatoes just don't like the 55-60F night temps that we consistently get here in the Bay Area, and I think Rosalita is one of them. Perhaps this variety would taste better grown in Southern Cali, TX, and part of the east coast?
