What are the pros? GORGEOUS!
What are the cons? Boring flavor and thick skin
My two plants set fruit pretty early for me in Northern California. The fruit was of medium size and while still green had delightful stripes hinting at the gorgeous colorful mature fruit it would soon turn into. And boy, what a gorgeous tomato! Some looked like they were on fire, while others were more subtle in their coloring. The first several ripe fruit were delicious on sandwiches and in fresh salsas, but then the fruits started developing thicker skins and bland flavor. I ended up throwing the later ones into sauces, though they were difficult to process because the fruit is very juicy with little meat the the skins were thick. Interestingly, one I had planted on the other side of the garden grew yellow striped tomatoes, very much lacking flavor. The chickens got those ones. These did set fruit early and kept producing through early fall, though the bugs got the late ones. Will try a new striped variety next season, but had fun growing this one. It's good for fresh eating.
