|Will I Grow Again?
||Maybe..although 2010 wasn’t a great year for them; in 2009 they were one of our favorites…and 2011 was not a good year because of disease, but we planted a bit too early.
|First Fruit Harvested
||76 days after transplant2011 was a very late year at 113 days before my first tomato
||nice, round tomato shape
|Average Fruit Size
||2009: average tomato size was smaller than expected, although I had my plants closer together than recommended2010: tomatoes averaged 5 oz; still not near the 10 oz description. They were spaced at 18″ apart in rows at 24″2011: tomatoes were smaller at almost 3 oz each…same spacing as last year
||good flavor; CK’s favorite in 2009
||2009: didn’t keep records, but I noted that they had high productivity.2010: 5 lbs (just under 20 tomatoes) per plant2011: 6 lbs per plant, about 35 tomatoes
||It’s supposed to be resistant to Verticillium & Fusarium, but I did see some wilting, but it could have been Bacterial Wilt
||2011: almost all of the tomatoes have dark specks on them (bacterial speck?). Possibly also has some early blight…and the flea beetles really liked these plants.
||This tomato just doesn’t excite me…
