What are the pros? Beautiful, wine-like flavor
What are the cons? Snail magnet; slow yields
I don't think I can stop myself from growing these again next year despite the fact that they have given me less fruit than any of 14 other tomato plants I grew this year. Their flavor is truly outstanding - sweet with a wine-like note that adds depth and richness. Here in San Jose, we had a cool spring and a hot summer; I'm not sure if they'd do better elsewhere, but mine is small and rangy and only gives a few thumbnail-sized fruits at a time. They were a major snail magnet; I started out with three, but snails ate two of them to the ground while ignoring the other varieties interspersed with them.
