Comstock Sauce and Slice Tomato

85 days. Gorgeous deep-red fruits reach to one-pound-plus, containing very few seeds. Originally introduced by Comstock, Ferre and Co in the 1980’s, having been received as a gift from a customer who reportedly brought the seeds from his native Italy. Preserved and beloved by local gardeners in and around Comstock’s hometown of Wethersfield, Connecticut. A dual-purpose type equally at home canned or in paste, or atop your favorite garden-fresh sandwich! Images shown are of unripe fruit.

What are the pros? Good green, fresh and paste

What are the cons? Late maturing

Review:

This was grown from a free sample included in my seed buy. I can't comment on germination since our cats made a mess of our peat pods so we didn't know what was what until fruit set began... The plants were healthy at first but then after transplant initially got what looked like leaf curl but it grew out of it so it was probably something else. It was the last variety out of the 5 we grew this year to mature. We still have only picked a few fruits off of it but the plants have a heavy crop on them. Because the fruit can get so large we have been using them for green tomatoes for which they are great. The ripe ones have had an almost a tropical/apricot flavor to them with good acid/sugar balance. Definitely great for fresh use. Likes: Flavor Size Meaty Small amount of seed Dislikes: Late maturing Possible disease or soil issues for this variety in our location. Would grow these again

What are the pros? Not much

What are the cons? Not a producer

Review:

I live in sunny California where tomatoes thrive. I always give a variety at least two years before giving my opinion on it. For me, this plant just doesn't give me much. In 2015 when I grew it first, the plant died before giving me any tomatoes. In 2016, one of my two plants succumbed to disease and the other produced a few tomatoes of different shapes. Weird. Same results for my cousins who I gave a couple of plants to. Maybe a third year with brand new seeds would give me a different result... but I think I'll skip in 2017 and try a different saucing tomato. The few tomatoes I got were easy to process into sauce. And by the way, I planted this variety right next to other tomato plants that produced abundantly all summer into fall. I have a no-till garden with super fertile soil topped with plenty of compost, manure, and mulch. So I dunno...

What are the pros? Large, Great Canner!!

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have to say I fell completely in love with this tomato last year, that I saved some seed and bought more for 2016. Unfortunately, I am dealing with what I believe is Leaf Curl Virus! I hope half of the 60 I planted survive and for those affected, pull through. I have already pulled up the worst, burned and replanted. The weather in the area last month was very wet and cold. I believe this has been a determining factor.

What are the pros? Big oblong size and plentiful

What are the cons? Lots of seeds and fibrous

Review:

With these weird looking tomatoes you must be patient! They are not early producers (at least, not for me). If you pick them before they are deep red, the inside will be fibrous. Ripe or not, there are lots of seeds. These are easily removed, however, and the fruit is so large that about 4 of them will fill a quart jar. Taste is good, but these are mainly suited for canning or paste. Plants, once they start producing, keep cranking out tomatoes until the weather turns chilly. Will give them another go this season.
