Positive BlueRidge_of_GA On Nov 26, 2011, BlueRidge_of_GA from BALL GROUND, GA (Zone 7b) wrote:

I do raised bed, organic gardening. I grew this during a very hot drought during the summer of 2011 without any supplementary watering, only rain. This grew well despite the drought and produced abundant medium-sized red fruit. (The high level of organic matter in my soil probably helped retain water during the drought.) The taste is bland and similar to store-bought tomatoes. Some of the plants experienced problems with verticillium wilt.

Good producing with compact growth, a little 'bland' for my taste. Seems to do well in hot weather but because of lack of taste I will not grow again.
