Blue Beauty Tomato

80 days. This recent Brad Gates introduction was selected from a cross between ‘Beauty King’ and a blue tomato. Fruits are modest beefsteak-type slicers, weighing up to 8 ounces, and the flavor is as good as their outstanding anti-oxidant content! Gorgeous, deep blue-black shoulders make this unique among slicing types. Excellent potential for market, as the fruits hold well on the vine. Sunburn- and crack resistance are a welcome bonus.

Surprisingly good tomato

What are the pros? Tasty, meaty, large

What are the cons? vines struggle under the weigh

Review:

We had nonstop rain from June to mid-July then nothing but heat and sun up until now. I planted one of these in partial shade and one in the regular tomato patch. The first half of summer was tough for all varieties in general. I sprayed neem oil twice a week to keep the blight/leaf spot at bay/control it, plus a lot of pruning of infected vines. These held up well. My purples really struggled (cherokee, robeson, tula) but these didn't. These held up better than most at the beginning but then struggled like all the others. They held up well overall. Now with the hot dry weather everything is rebounding (bushy at top/sparse and leggy at the bottom), these included. These were the last of all 22 plants to ripen. Just started to get some within the last few days. Taste is really good and balanced, surprisingly so. In a salad with some balsamic they were amazing. These were firmer with a tougher skin. They don't soften too much as they ripen. Vines can snap with the weight so caution.

Not as pretty as in photos

What are the pros? Drought tolerant

What are the cons? Bland taste

Review:

I can't speak to it's prolificness since this summer was a bad one for tomatoes overall. The plant itself grew well and is fairly drought tolerant. My tomatoes did not get the deep blue banding on the top like in the photos. The taste was okay but pretty mild for a red tomato. I don't think I'll grow again.

A kind of ok tomato
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Performed well, high yeild

What are the cons? Taste is rather bland

Review:

Unfortunately i have to join the other reviews that say this tomato is lacking in flavor. The plants themselves do perform great with many fruits on the vine, but it has quite a watered down taste, IMO, but otherwise a good type to give a try.

I have nothing bad to say about these delicious beauties. They are so beautiful and have a nice, complex flavor that I adore! I will plant this type every year in my garden, this is my second year planting them and they are flowering as I type, I can't wait!
