“Persuasion” is another eye-catching variety by Brad Gates. Once more, I will mark my listing for this as a developing variety. Several members of my forum grew this at the same time as I did, and some found oblate beefsteaks while others, including myself, found the roundish medium salads that were the original phenotype described. There were also varying degrees of anthocyanin; however, that can be due to environmental conditions more than instability.
The flavor opinion varied as well. One grower said, “Tangy and sweet with a little something extra. Agreeable texture and thin skins. Another winner.” My tasting notes recorded, “Tomatoey flavor, not leaning more to sweetness nor to tanginess.” The anthocyanin on my fruits became just a dusting on fully ripe fruits. Other growers noted much greater purple showing.
