Last year I planted it too close to another tomato and it did not thrive so this year it is growing alone in a raised bed and I have high hopes. It does need support in my garden...
Interesting. Mine was the first to fruit--even ahead of cherry tomatoes, and set 6 fruits on the first truss! So it was early and prolific. But all of those fruits got BER, half of them at a very small size. Maybe the BER is because the plant was simply not established enough to be putting on all that fruit so early.
