I grew this for the first time this year here in northern Virginia. It has done well. Yields were a bit below what I'd hoped for, but I chalk that up to growing the plants in 5 gallon buckets instead of in the ground. I've had some cracks on the top, which is just a cosmetic issue and is, again, probably due to growing in too small of a container (to be fair, though, I haven't had cracking with many of my other varieties). The taste is simply fantastic. It has a strong, distinctive tomato taste and when I take a bite from a carbon and then from an early girl or beefsteak, there is simply no comparison. I love this tomato and will grow many next year!

I have grown this variety in BC, Canada since I discovered it several years ago. It is probably my favourite large black tomato for flavour for fresh eating. I now only grow red tomatoes for cooking and sauces.
