What are the pros? good yield, beautiful colour

Review:

I was so excited to try this tomato. The plant was healthy and big, produced lots of fruit. Taste is something personal and for me this tomato lacks acidity to really bring out the flavor. I prefer a tomato with good sugar and acidity balance.

Review:

This was the best tomato that we grew last year and possibly our best tomato ever. A high end restaurant took every one that we gave them. Initially, I picked them too early and the flavor wasn't as good. The flavor was best when they were allowed to fully ripen on the vine. Often I pick tomatoes before they are completely ripe, because I don't want them to crack. But compared to other tomatoes, Blush had very little cracking. They were fantastic when dried, (but I think that yellow tomatoes in general are especially tangy and fruity when dried). Also, these tomatoes kept their good eating quality for a long like time (like a week or even two) after picking. Most heirloom tomatoes that we grow, peak in ripeness and then rapidly go bad. Finally, they looked beautiful and had good disease resistance. I have tried many of Brad Gates tomatoes because I love the look of them, but for us the flavor hasn't been good. Next year I will try more of Fred Hempel's tomatoes.

Review:

If I had to use just one word to describe this tomato it would be WOW! This jewel has the sweetest taste and grows very well with great production and is a thing of beauty to look at. Sprinkle a little salt on one and you're headed for tomato heaven. I can't say enough about this tomato. Try it...you will probably feel the same way I feel! Can't wait til next spring to load my garden with it again!

What are the pros? Sturdy vines, meaty flesh

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is the sturdiest variety I've personally every seen, should require minimal caging/staking. These took off incredibly fast and kept producing loads of perfect paste type tomatoes. They have a great flavor and a thick skin, which is strikingly beautiful. I highly recommend this tomato, excellent variety.
