What are the pros? Great flavor and size

What are the cons? None

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!

What are the pros? heavy yield, early ripening

What are the cons? needs too much room to grow.

Review:

I received these tomato as a free sample gift with some other seeds that I purchased this year (2015). I typically grow a lot of tomatoes so I figured what the heck, it couldn’t hurt to add these to the garden this year as well. I tried something a little new this year (2015) and planted my tomatoes from seed directly in the ground rather than starting them indoors like I usually do. This technique has worked extremely well and my plants all seem much stronger and more vigorous then previous years. I live in central Texas and sowed in the second week of March. It’s now the middle of June and and I harvested my first tomatoes from these plants this week. The Black Vernissage has been the most impressive of the eight tomato varieties that I planted this year. These plants are extremely fast growing and extremely, extremely huge; they need a lot and I mean a lot of room to grow. These plants are also very, very prolific producers of small (2 oz. or so) purple and green striped tom

What are the pros? they grow fast

What are the cons? they take forever to ripen

Review:

this is my first time growing them, and they are fun to grow as they grow fast. but they take for ever to ripen, 1 here...2 more there. I have 8 plants of them, and i do eat them right off the vine and do not find them mealy or grainy...pithy is probably the word you are looking for but i do not find them that way. i'm curious how one would make a "sauce" with them seeing as how they are so small, and slow ripening. but then again..I don't grow mine in all a that fancy dirt and stuff, i grow them in good organic soil with my 2 secret ingredients that "foodie's" would scoff at so i'll keep them in my world haha.
