90 days. Winner of the 2005 "Heirloom Garden Show" best tasting tomato award. These have won taste awards coast to coast in the last few years, so we were proud to locate a small supply of seed. The fruit are smooth, large, and beautiful, being one of the darkest and prettiest of the purple types we have seen. They seem to have an extra dose of the complex flavor that makes dark tomatoes famous.

Review:

I'm a first time gardener and started these indoors in July. (Pretty sure now that's not when I was supposed to start them) It's now mid-December and I'm having the flowers dry up and tiny tomatoes poke out! I did everything wrong with these (except fertilize with compost and compost tea) and they're still bearing fruit. I started them indoors in a laundry room with no light and didn't transplant in time. Transplants were root-bound and many seemed stunted (but healthy looking) after transplant. So far not too many pests except white flies, which didn't last too long. Will review again after fruit is ripe. Looking forward to trying these again the right way.

What are the pros? Too hot in Nola for these

What are the cons? No luck in Zone 9b

Review:

Grew these in 2015. Plants were lovely and healthy with lots of flowers but no fruit. Tried again in 2016, same problem. Tried hand pollinating both times. I don't think these produce in hot humid summers. I'm going to try Lucid Gem and Creole Original in 2017.

Review:

Many of my seeds did not sprout (possibly due to my own storage issues) but in being persistent I had a few grow and I am in AWE at the flavor of this tomato! One of the last of my beefsteaks to ripen but well worth the wait!!

Review:

Grew these indoor's about mid-February and trans-planted outside mid-April. 5 out of 6 plants survived(only used 12 seeds),they grew to about 3 foot tall but never set fruit until late August then they had maybe 1-2 tomatoes per plant.In September they really started going and got first taste of this variety,they have a sweet taste to them and lots of flavor.They get a very dark crimson red mixed with green tint complexion but when sliced it is just red with compact segments and not many seeds.Their size varies from plum to large orange and all of the fruit on the plants tend to be kidney shaped or strange shaped but also have regular round tomatoes as well.When transplanted I didn't fuss to much with them I just dug a 3-4 inch hole and tossed in some miracle grow potting soil and watered,they seem to be pretty hardy.As of this writing, Nov. 3 I got 46 tomatoes from 3 of the plants and there are still another 20 tomatoes on the vine.OK gets hot so don't expect early crop just wait!
