What are the pros? steady producer, popular
What are the cons? bacterial spot late in season
This is a regular workhorse tomato for me. Steady producer all season and into late fall. Striking and well received by customers, pretty in salads and good for sauce. Not as meaty as a full paste tomato, but good enough. Very little "goo" inside, so kids and non-tomato lovers like it. A little more citrusy tart than San Marzano or Amish paste. Will continue producing reliably even with poor soil, but taste and look will suffer. Keeps producing into October in Chicago but may eventually fall prey to bacterial spotting if soil nutrition and maintenance decline. Definitely worth trying for home use or market. Germination rates consistently high from both bought and saved seed.
