65-77 Days. Originally offered by Oscar Will in 1937. Dwarf determinate plants require no staking or pruning. 3-inch, deep red fruits are produced even in cold, damp weather. Has produced as much as 40 pounds of fruit from a single plant!! Another of Dr. A.F. Yeager's triumphs. Our foundation seed came from Todd Wert and Bryce Farnsworth, and originated with the North Dakota State University breeding program.

Review:

I'm new to gardening in the North West, but these tomatoes have done AMAZING. I grew three in containers and lost one due to an early cold snap, but the two remaining ones have outproduced even the store bought one started in a greenhouse. These plants are huge producers and taste great :) I can't wait to grow these again next year.

What are the pros? Great for cold climates

What are the cons? Fruit is on the small side

Review:

These tomatoes are very delicious. They are perfect for colder climates because they mature quickly, plus they hold up well if the temperature dips. I grew these in containers and they did perfectly fine. The plants don't get too tall and I didn't even need to steak them in the containers. Definitely a great one for a short growing season!

Review:

We are an heirloom farm in Berkshire, NY (Zone 5A), committed to growing and selling heirloom fruit and vegetable varieties. This summer we incorporated Bison Tomatoes into our garden that was watered via a creek pump-driven drip irrigation system. We found that the Bison split around the crown on virtually all fruits, probably due to too much watering, but the flavor was still excellent. Each plant branched out quite wide with heavily fruited branches that required staking, although we can't say definitively that growing this variety without irrigation and staking isn't an option for other areas.

Review:

Purchased several varieties of small compact tomato (Bison, Al Kuffa, Snow Fairy for use in raised beds. The Bison tended to branch a lot and did require staking as a result. Thy also had more problems with insect pests - the Snow Fairy and Al Kuffa plants and fruits did not seem to suffer nearly as much from the pests despite being in the same beds . Lastly, the fruits did not ripen evenly (at least for me) - the tops of the somewhat flattened fruit stayed green. Flavor was fine however. I'll caveat this by saying my "field trial" only included 3-4 plants of each variety - due to the positioning of the raised bds, the Bisonplants got more direct late afternoon sun which could have affected the results (I'm in Georgia so late afternoon sun is pretty intense).
