I have grown this variety from seed for five years and have always found it to be reliable, abundant, and delicious. It grows well in the S.California coastal regions. The only challenge I have had is with the seed germination. It seems like I used more seeds than usual and they take longer.

Planted 18 Tangella plants outside in June 2006. For the first month, they grew okay, but growth all but stopped as the days got longer and the temperature rose. Towards the end of August, some of the surviving plants (a few of the plants had died by this time) started putting on new growth and a few blossoms. By the time frost killed the plants at the end of September, the total yield was 4 ripe tomatoes and 3 green drops. 3 of the ripe tomatoes were extremely bitter tasting.
