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.

Details:

  • Lycopersicon lycopersicum

What are the pros? Lovely flavor

What are the cons? Poor germination

Review:

These seeds didn't have a very good germination rate, but those that did sprout produced large beautiful tomatoes that were fantastic eaten fresh.

Makes the Best BLTs ever

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.

What are the pros? Color

What are the cons? failure to produce

Review:

I have tried growing this variety several times and it has never produced more than one or two tomatoes for me. A couple of years ago, I tried Cherokee Green and grew Aunt Ruby's too. The Cherokee Green set a lot of tomatoes and I didn't get any at all from Aunt Ruby's. I no longer grow this variety because I'd rather use the space for one that will produce. Maybe it just doesn't do well in our climate.
