This year I have one plant of what I am pretty certain is Reisenstraub. I bought a packet a couple years ago and one finally made it into the garden apparently (I never keep track of the seeds when I start plants, so it's a pot-luck surprise every year).
Anyway, the amazing thing is how whoppingly big this variety is. The plant is easily twice as big as any other I've ever grown. Luckily it just so happened there were a couple of empty cages around it because it has sprawled over 3 or 4 cages. It went about 8 feet high at first and then collapsed under its own weight, falling down over the 5 foot high cages, and now the suckers have popped up to the 8 or nine feet again.
I used to do the two-string training method for tomatoes but got kind of tired of the effort and went over to cages and no pruning at all, but this Reisenstraub is maybe just way to big for that. I won't be able to get at all the fruit. No hint of ripening yet either, which is really late.
Has anyone grown this one, and if so what did you note about it?
