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.

What are the pros? Flavor, production

What are the cons? Nothing to dislike

Review:

This tomato is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite tomatoes. The flavor is like the best of a black tomato mixed with a definite pink tomato taste. It is firm yet very juicy when sliced into, also the blue beauty stored very well with some of the tomatoes lasting up to two weeks on the counter. The plants have always produced nicely with last year being so prolific it seemed like tomatoes outnumbered the leaves. The color of this tomato is stunning with the blue fading into a deep pink. The Blue Beauty seemed easier to tell when ripe compared to the other blue tomatoes we have tried. A big hit at the market.

What are the pros? Love the color!

What are the cons? Disappointed in the flavor.

Review:

2014, tomatoes were smooth and beautiful. 2015, every tomato had fine cracks on the shoulders making them unsalable. Flavor has been disappointing; color is wonderful I'm truly considering not growing next year.

What are the pros? Good seed germination, yummy

What are the cons? slow to ripen on vine

Review:

Beautiful in our garden! The last tomatoes to ripen, but we had loads of yummy purple maters from late July thru today, 11-11-15... about 4 months of harvest... and many still on the vines as we head toward our first frost. I wish I could share a picture of the fruit - deep purple from the very top to about halfway down. I planted 6 seeds and 5 plants survived. The caged plants grew over 5 feet tall and very bushy. No significant disease or pest problems in our organic suburban garden. The whole family loved these sweet tomatoes. We froze a few for sauce, but mostly ate them fresh sliced. Some were giants, some were small. but all were delicious! I'll definitely plant them again next year.

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.
