May try to grow again in the future. I only had 6 tomatoes on my plant, most cracked bad. Texture was ok, very meaty. Taste was much to be desired, very bland to me. I'm 95% sure most of that was do to all the rain we had this year and my Chianti Rose was in a 8hr sun spot. Might have done better if it recieved sun all day long and less rain.
