80 days. An old Cherokee Indian heirloom, pre-1890 variety; beautiful deep dusky purple-pink color, superb sweet flavor, and very large sized fruit. Try this one for real old-time tomato flavor. My favorite dark tomato!

What are the pros? Flavorful and large

What are the cons? Giant plant - requires space

Review:

These are sturdy, easy-to-grow beauties! I found myself anxious for the work day to end so I could go home and cut into one of these fresh tomatoes. The plant itself got taller than me (I'm 5'9") and required more room than any other tomato plant I've had - so, keep that in mind when spacing your garden because I unintentionally crowded mine. Didn't really seem to matter, though...they still created a lot of beautiful fruit.

What are the pros? Taste, Appearance,

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is the third year I've grown these and they are the tomato I compare all others against. I have ripe tomatoes by the third week of June and they produce into October. Prolific and large fruits, plants grow over 8 feet in cages. Some cracking and pest problems but the trouble is well worth it. This is what a tomato is supposed to taste like. They will always have a place in my garden.

What are the pros? By far the taste

What are the cons? All my family wants them

Review:

The best tomato in my garden out of 20 varieties, makes the best tomato sandwich hands down. Ripens before most similar variety's. Can't get enough of them 10 stars. They remind me of some of the Lebanese variety's that have been harvested for years in the Middle East. Just a little darker in color .

What are the pros? Amazing taste

What are the cons? Split fruit

Review:

These are amazing tasting tomatoes to eat fresh. None have made it to sauce or salsa. They had perfect germination and almost all the starts made it to the garden. Once in the garden all of them thrived, despite only fair soil. The only complaint I have is that they were prone to splitting, which may have been my fault or due to the extreme heat and variable water. I only watered if they went more than 4 days without rain. I grew them completely without any kind of chemicals, including fertilizer. They fought off blight longer than many other varieties, but finally succumbed. I have grown them for the last 2 years and plan for them to be a permanent addition to my garden.

What are the pros? Good yield, large, good flavor

What are the cons? Large vine

Review:

These tomatoes are the star of my garden. The fruit is absolutely beautiful - people literally "ooh" and "ahh" at these things. Besides good looks, the flavor is just outstanding. Meaty, rich, and slightly sweet. The vines grow quite fast and without vigilant upkeep can look gangly and unkempt. However, the size, flavor, and yield of the fruit more than makes up for an unwieldy vine.
