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? 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.

What are the pros? Productive, great for canning

What are the cons? Slow to mature

Review:

I grew these in 2015 in atlantic Canada where our growing season is from the end of May until mid September. The plants were very full and bushy but the fruit set later than ususal and we ended up having to pick them all green to ripen inside when we got frost in late September. they'd be great for someone with just a little longer growing season.
