I'm in San Francisco, right by the beach. Summers can be dark, foggy, and cool. Tomatoes don't usually do well here, and this one was no exception. I've tried it for several years, and I've given up on it. Does nothing. Doesn't even grow well. Siberian Red, grown in the same garden, does much better. Not every year, but most of the time. Unfortunately, it starts getting a heavy crop in late October/early November, so I bring them in green and let them ripen in the house. The cool weather here slows everything down, nothing ripens according to the seed packet.

This is one of my go-to tomatoes with Michigan's colder climate. I grow these in my greenhouse every year and my clients are happy. I also grow them in my garden. They are not big in size but have good flavor.
