    I grew one Burgess Trip-L-Crop plant when I lived in Northern California. Unfortunately, the cold nights (under 55 degrees) caused severe blossom drop. I got only one small, gnarly tomato. The flavor, however, was outstanding. Equal to a neighbor's well grown Brandywine. I think there's potential in this variety if it's grown properly. Now that I'm in Hawaii, I'm going to give it a shot.
