Good in Minnesota

I always grow some of these in addition to S. Marzano, Polish Linguisa ecc. They do well in a short season with less than ideal conditions. They seem immune to blossom-end rot and are reliably prolific. They keep very well, whether on the plant or after picking. I pick them over a period of days until I have enough for a large batch of passata. When everything else fails, these always come through.

didn't work for us

growing in large pots in hawaii, these produced a modest number of dryish, tasteless tomatoes on plants that succumbed to dusty mildew. we've had good crops from other varieties, and maybe this one's just not for our conditions.
