Paul Robeson growers
I need your help.
For the past three years I have attempted to grow Paul Robeson tomatoes. The first year we'll just chalk up to the fact that I did not know what I was doing. Second year, beautiful plants, but never set fruit. Last year, plants made it through the summer (not beautiful though), no fruit. I give a few plants to my aunt each year, and the second year hers put on a lot a fruit just before the first frost (we found out that Paul Robesons make really good fried green tomatoes).
I live in the piedmont of NC, just north of Charlotte. Some research that I've done says PR are well suited for cool climates. Should I try to plant them earlier? later? or are they just not going to grow well here? Looking for advice from someone with experience with these.
Thanks in advance!!
