80 days. A medium-sized pink tomato that is smooth and a beautiful rose color. An excellent variety from Arkansas, tolerant to heat and humidity; crack and disease resistant. Good flavor, an excellent hillbilly favorite.

What are the pros? Great summer tomato
What are the cons? Can crack
One of our favorite tomatoes on the homestead. These produced so well that this variety and one other will be the only ones we grow from here on out!
We had great productions and very few issues. The aphids did go after the plants but we used neem oil/Dr. Bronners Sal Suds to keep them at bay which worked fine.
The only real issue that arised is that during peek production we went about 4 weeks with little rain and then a great downpour made a bunch of them crack. However its Sept 27 and they are still producing. We mention them specifically (Baker Creek too!) in one of our episodes on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEBxe3QJ1A8

What are the pros? Reliability
What are the cons? small in size
This will always be grown in my garden. When I've had problems with blossom end rot, underwatering, overwatering, and blossom drop due to heat with my other tomatoes. This tomato has always produced for me though. On top of that, it doesn't exhibit cracking in any form, and always gives perfect little spheres. I probably average 12-15 tomatoes per plant, all between 2.5-3.5 inches. Tolerates blight better than some as well. About the only thing that can stop it is the occasional worm. Oh yeah, did I mention they have pretty good flavor? Now if only they were bigger. Can't win them all I guess.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, delicious
What are the cons? Late producer
This is the first big tomato I've had luck with. It was sweet and full of flavor with no splits. My mom also grew this and we both had lots. It did well here where it is dry and pretty warm.

What are the pros? Taste & size.
What are the cons? None
Amazing tasting tomato. I grew 5 different kinds of tomatoes this year and this was by far the best. Great slicer and also delicious in salsa and bruschetta. Yummy. Yummy. Yummy. Easy to grow.

What are the pros? Delicious, vigorous/productive
What are the cons? none
This tomato is very delicious, germinates well/easily, easy to grow in our hot humid southern climate, and is very productive. It took a little longer to get going than the Floradade, but is vastly superior in flavor and is now outgrowing the other variety. Highly recommend!
