I've grown them 2 years now. I didn't notice any bitterness. They're supposed to have a smaller seed cavity and less moisture than other tomatoes, and I can say that's pretty much true...they're also a LOT smaller than I anticipated! For the effort, I'm planning to grow two canning varieties this year, then "taste off" after canning.

I do have to say that my own canned chopped tomatoes (very chunky) is making better salsa than what's available in the market.
