  • I live in CentraL FL and it has grown well inside a open screened cage attached to my house. It is very good with disease resistance so far but I don't know about bug issues because it is protected from most bugs. The biggest problem I have had is the tendency to get big cracks due to the heavy rains in June. The tomatoes are delicious with a little salt but the plant doesn't set a lot of fruit and it takes awhile to ripen - I had lots of Celebritys much quicker. Note: I planted these in a 10 inch raised bed on concrete.
