80 days. Many seeds savers believe this is the ultimate paste tomato. Giant, blocky Roma-type tomatoes have delicious red flesh that is perfect for paste and canning. World class flavor and comes from an Amish community in Wisconsin. Image provided by www.abundantacres.net

Review:

This tomato was so easy to transplant and grow. Grew so quickly that we didn't get all of them staked properly and lost some to rot. We had a little bit of blight without warning but only at the end of the season. Made fantastic flavorful paste with skin that slipped easily after boiling.

Review:

I grow exclusively organic in bottom wicking containers and make my own mix. A friend gave me some small seedlings of this variety and I tried them in my usual tomato mix. They grew rapidly and never faltered all season. When they set fruit my first thought was "These are not Romas" because they were huge and not a blossom end rot on any. I've harvested some almost full pound fruit, but most ranged between 8-12 oz. I do limit my plants to two (actually 1&1/2 as I truncate the second stem after the second fruit cluster) stems and minimum foliage, which likely gives me bigger fruit than many will see. Meaty and taste good enough for slicing.

Review:

This is the 3rd year I grew this tom. I bought the seeds because of all the great reviews, and I really wanted to love this tom! I usually grow ~ 15 toms, most heirloom from Baker Creek. All three years of trying this tom was a huge disappointment. The plant is always scraggly, the toms, when I got any at all, are ~ 2 inches length, and taste is just OK. After 3 times of trying, I am done with them. I don't know if I got a "bad" batch of seeds (I am sure there is variance in heirloom seed) or what, but after 3 years, I am finished with them. My opinion is in the minority, so maybe you will have better luck with them than I.

What are the pros? Best tomato

What are the cons? Heck No

Review:

One side of the yard I used a post hole digger to loosen the soil below the plant. Probably 6 hours of sun set in mid or late May. Next to nothing produced until cooler weather arrived. One plant I set in leaf mulch in the city yard waste container. The plant had 8 hours plus of sun. It produced 59 tomatoes some 8 inches long. They were great taste and texture. Sweet from the sun and no pests or fungus from good ventilation. All the weight will split the plant so plan on support. I was unsuccessful trying to clone the plant. Don't give up just experiment with the plants to see what they need.
