Review:

Received a free packet with my order this year. Didn't know much about this one but figured it had to be good since it is purple. Very healthy & easy growing plants. Picked my first 2 ripe last night. OMG! Best tasting purple ever. Perfect snack. Even won over my 82 year old father who only likes red tomatoes. Can't wait to win over a stubborn brother who has yet to find a purple he likes. Gave extra plants to family & friends. I think they will be quite pleased also. Happy snacking everyone. Thanks Baker Creek.

Review:

Like others got as free gift sampler with order. Reviews were a bit dim at that time but trust Baker. A lovely hardy burly tomato with the most beautiful and delicious toms, fabulous green stripes and meaty, flavorable flesh.....roasted is their fate here. Seems quite resistant to the other afflictions of the heirloom tomato garden this year as well. Season is late oddly given our early spring but now is going in overdrive. Thank you Baker!!!

Review:

I got these as a free gift with my 2015 order. For this inexperienced gardener these were a breeze to grow with a very high germination rate, about 99%. I kept some and gave some away. Everyone that got some is raving about the flavor and color! Though we had a late winter and a wet spring, I'm still the first one to have ripe tomatoes here in mid July and these were the first. I started them indoors in late March. They are definitely the most hardy and vigorous of the three varieties that I planted. (Martino's Roma and Granny Cantrell's) I'm not a huge tomato fan, but I find myself plucking these golfball sized beauties for my lunch straight from the vine on a daily basis. They do have a little thicker skin, but it doesn't bother me and keeps them from bursting while rolling around in my lunch bag out in the fields. This one's a keeper! Can't wait to try sauce!

What are the pros? Grows well in Aquaponics

What are the cons? not the best germ rates

Review:

I got these as a free packet with an order and didn't have plans to use them. All of a sudden I realized I had two free grow beds in my aquaponics system that became free and so I sprinkled them in. The germination rates didn't seem all that good. I thinned a few out but not all the seeds sprouted like with other tomatoes in the system. The ones that did sprout went for the moon. They are producing well and my wife has labeled them one of this years favorites so far. I will keep the seeds from this year and plant them again. Thanks Baker Creek for including these. We are big fans!

What are the pros? Very cool colors, great taste

What are the cons? none

Review:

This packet of seeds was included in my order as a free gift, and after reading the reviews that others gave this tomato, I concluded that they probably chose this as a free gift because it's not the most desirable tomato. Nonetheless, I decided to grow this anyways along with the other varieties of heirlooms for this season. Had a high rate of germination compared to the others, and the seedlings were stronger than all of the other three heirlooms. I grew this in a container like I did the rest of my heirlooms, and it was one of the fastest growing and earliest maturing. Only my small cherry tomatoes matured before this variety. The colors are honestly so cool to look at, and the inside is spectacular as well. It's about the size of a golf ball. This is where I disagree with the other reviews - the taste. Very sweet, but not overpowering - it's got that 'black' flavor to mellow it out. I didn't find it mealy at all, and that's just eating it as plain slices. Very delicious!
