A bit disappointing
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Beautiful leaves!

What are the cons? Flavor. Color.

Review:

Overall I was disappointed with the taste and color. They were in intense sunlight for most of the day but had very little purple color to them. Mostly an orange-red. A few fruits were yellow with purplish shoulders. The taste left something to be desired. While I don't mind a tomato that is not particularly sweet, I found these tomatoes to be mostly devoid of flavor. When they did have flavor, it was more sour than sweet. They were, however, easy to grow. And I appreciate the texture of the tomato. The flesh was never remotely mealy. The leaves were a pretty shape with darker coloration so they added an interesting texture to the garden. Flea beetles attacked these plants immediately and seemed to prefer them to my other tomatoes. However, I never found any hornworms on these guys. Not for snacking fresh but should make a good addition to salsa.

Blueberry Tomato

What are the pros? Extremely productive

What are the cons? Germination was a bit low

Review:

Loads of marble to superball-sized cherry tomatoes. They definitely need room to grow. I had one plant that produced mostly yellow skin fruits. Once I figured out what color to pick them at, it was not a huge deal as the taste was the same as the red ones. (They need to get to a "sunshine yellow") They worked well in the huge batch of salsa that we made, as the smaller size required less processing.

What are the pros? prolific

What are the cons? not true color

Review:

Very little blue and many different colors showed up showing some interesting genetics at plat. We got orange, yellow, red and yellow with a tiny bit of blue and red with a tiny bit of blue. Taste was so-so - will not be planting these again or saving seeds.

Great little tomatoes
Easy to Grow 5.0

What are the pros? Quick producer and color

What are the cons? Disease intolerance

Review:

Growing these in my garden on the east/ south east side of the Big Island of Hawaii and so far they're doing pretty good as far as growth and production. As far as disease resistance goes they're not so good. My plants have already been affected by blight and I've had to start spraying to keep it at bay. Although the weather here has been unfavorable for keeping blight away (hot humid days and rainy nights in the 60s and early 70s) plant is still going strong though

Awesome Little Tomatoes
Easy to Grow 4.5

What are the pros? Very cool, Tastes great

What are the cons? None!

Review:

These are an awesome addition to the garden, and I highly recommend them if you have some extra space and like to experiment with some unique varieties. People love looking at these on the plant, and they taste great! The look exactly like they do in the pictures, starting off purple, then slowly transitioning to green then red. But most of them will keep a little bit of the purple/blue tint in some spots, which makes them great for giving away. There are more pictures on my blog of just how cool they look. Here's a link to that post: http://southerndone.com/2016/05/03/blue-berry-tomato-updatereview/ Bottom line, give these a shot!
