Aunt Ruby's German Green Tomato

85 days. One of the largest green beefsteaks. Can grow to over 1 pound and are just delicious. They have brilliant, neon-green flesh with a strong, sweet, and fruity flavor, much tastier than most red tomatoes. This family heirloom from Germany is beautiful. The winner of the 2003 Heirloom Garden Show's taste test.

  • Lycopersicon lycopersicum

What are the pros? Very Large, Super Tasty

What are the cons? Never Enough of Them

Review:

We have grown this tomato for several years. It is our absolute favorite. We have had many people turn their nose up at a green tomato, but many (the open-minded ones that don't let looks scare them) that try them agree with us, that this is one of the most tasty tomatoes they have ever had. We never have enough to eat and share with all of our Aunt Ruby begging friends. The other reviewer is right, if you have never grown a green tomato, just squeeze it gently and you can tell when it is ripe. We will continue to grow this tomato every year.

What are the pros? Great fried!

What are the cons? Very heavy plants

Review:

Grew these last year for the first time. Produced all summer long, lots of tomatoes and very big. I read that you have to press in them and feel them for ripeness because they don't turn red. So, when they were getting soft I picked them and they tasted great! They were big and heavy and some branches broke off. If I ant them Again I will prepare better.

Makes the Best BLTs ever
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Very sweet, juicy, best flavor

What are the cons? Hard to tell when ripe

Review:

I am a novice gardener. This is by far the best tomato I have ever eaten, much less grown myself! The fruit is quite large -one slice covered the bread in my BLT sandwich. The flavor is to die for! It's incredibly sweet & juicy, much more flavor than the typical beefsteak tomato, but the same texture. It grew very easily in the garden (I had added fertilizer to the soil before planting because the garden plot had been a grass lawn, but no fertilizer later on) with just regular watering throughout the season. When I tried to grow Aunt Ruby in a container, the plant wasn't as bushy & did not bear much fruit. I'm sure it was an error on my part - maybe should have fertilized more. I will keep planting every year because it is so worth it. The only other challenge for me is that it was hard to tell when it was ripe because the tomato stays green.

What are the pros? great for sandwich or Caprese

What are the cons? Needs training for trellis

Review:

I grew this in a west facing bed with a trellis and a timed soaker hose. With consistent watering and my abundant sun, I got 1-2 pound fruits all summer long. The vines were over 8 feet long and very heavy. I probably got 50 pounds of tomatoes off this one plant. Two months ago I removed my tomato plants except Ruby to paint my house. I haven't watered since. Ruby is setting more tomatoes now in January. I can't even kill this plant on purpose. I guess it's time to start watering it again.
