I'm in the middle on this tomato...

It's production is fantastic, lots of VERY big grape type 'maters.

Taste is very good (sweet) but not the best I've ever tried.

My big issue is the fact that this type was supposed to be crack resistant, but it was the very first tomato to split in my garden. Sungolds were fine as were all my large varieties when these started to split after a heavy rain. Will probably go in another direction next year.

Last year I grew this tomato: loved its productivity, and sweet taste but most of all the fact that it does not split as quickly or easily when it rains in the fall. I had so many off of one plant that I finally used it for juice to add to canning tomatoes! It produced fruit into the 3rd week of October.
