I won't say it doesn't grow here, just that the tomatoes can be on the sharp
side for my taste, and the variety didn't bear as heavily as a number of
others tried at the same time.

Interesting, at www.seedsofchange.com (another source for the seeds), this
is 
what they say about the tomato, which looks like it would be perfect for
Oregon...just goes to show experience is always better than what they say in
the catalog:
