What are the pros? Flavor, Hardiness, Longevity
What are the cons? No complaints
I started trying different tomatoes here in western Oregon about 20 years ago, moving from the "tried and true" favorites plus Oregon Spring and Willamette (which were not consistent in quality each year) to lots of varieties from Baker and Totally Tomatoes. I figured since every summer is different, having different kinds would mean we always at least get a few good tomatoes! Anyway, I tried Tappy and St. Pierre this year for salad tomatoes, and while we do like Tappy, it didn't like the early rains we got recently and the fruit is falling off the vines before they are ripe. St. Pierre not only has more flavor than Tappy, we're also seeing it "hang in there" for the weird weather events and producing like crazy with no splitting or early falls. The plants are huge as well.
PS our favorite sauce tomato is still Anna's Russian, even though she splits like crazy, you can't grow a more flavorful sauce tomato in this climate.
