Pretty, but Bland, January 27, 2019 By Elaine (Albuquerque, NM)(Verified)
This produced the earliest tomatoes I've ever grown. Some were ripe in June, planted the beginning of May. The last part of the ripening takes the longest. Don't be fooled. Wait for the green areas to turn red before picking. But even picked when ripe, the flavor is bland, more like store-bought tomatoes. They are certainly a very pretty tomato, but since flavor is what I want, I will not buy these again.
