pros: easy to start from seed, easy to grow, prolific, compact size
cons: lacks flavor - gave several of these to friends for growing in containers and all reported that while the plants were well suited for containers and attractive, the tomatoes didn't taste much better than a standard supermarket tomato in the winter. Doesn't seem worth the effort to me
