For the past 25 or so years I have been planting this variety. The first year I got them it was just to get a few tomatoes earlier, but since then I have never failed to plant some. I usually plant 5 or 5 varieties every year, because the weather here is so variable that one never knows what to expect. Most of the other tomatoes will produce great or terrible depending on how the summer goes. This year we had a rainy cool spring and several of the varieties did rather poorly. One of the heirloom varieties, and the Better Boys did real well (better boys do well here about 1 out of 3 years) No matter how the other varieties do... every year the early girls do fine...they are always crisp and never mushy, they seem to be more resistent to disease, and in the Fall, the are the only ones still producing tomatoes after the others have faded. If it wasn't for their small size, I probably not grow any other variety. What's your experience?
