I did grow Cobra tomatoes in my green house last year. Was very disappointed. Its not a tall plant as was described and the production of the plant was poor. The fruit is very hard and about 4-5 oz in weight. Its good for caning that's it. Wont grow it again in my green house. Its not a mid season tomato its more late season.
