These are wonderful little tomatoes on hardy little plants that stood up to a brutal summer. This was my first year growing them, and they are a winner. In my opinion these are the perfect sauce / salsa tomato, though they are also delicious fresh from the vine, in Greek salads, or for roasting with chiles for salsa (not too watery like many tomatoes). The flavor is rich and perfectly balanced--and I love the thick skins; flavor is miles ahead of other paste / sauce tomatoes. The tomatoes are also the perfect size--like a very large cherry or small plum type, 2-3", easy to work with in the kitchen.
We had extreme heat and drought in our garden this summer (CA Central Coast zone 9b); I planted these the furthest away, in an exposed, hard to reach spot, hoping that they would tolerate less moisture. They did pretty well, and are still producing fruit in late October. Despite doing well in the stress test, in the future I'll give them a little extra water in the hottest part of summer and hopefully have even more fruit. As the summers continue to get hotter and drier, I'm glad to have Punta Banda on my team.
One very important thing that others have mentioned: these do not behave like most "indeterminate" tomatoes that grow very long vines; they produce much more compact plants with shorter vines (not quite determinate either; maybe "semi-indeterminate"?). I would recommend doing only very minimal pruning of these plants to maximize their fruit production. I usually grow my tomatoes on a 3-leader staking method to save space and grow vertically, and that did not work very well with this variety. My other tomatoes are all 7+ feet tall now, but Punta Banda never got higher than about 3-4 feet, and my pruning probably cost me delicious fruit. In the future I will grow this variety in a large tomato cage with a central stake, and maybe just prune the lower branches a bit to keep them off the ground.
