Comstock Sauce and Slice Tomato

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
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.

Very Productive but Weird
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 2.0
 

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.

Good but late

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.

Review:

While researching Foote family history in Wethersfield in 2013, I came across the Comstock, Ferre retail site. Bought these tomato seeds and red onions seeds just out of sentimental feeling for my Nathaniel Foote ancestors. A year later in spring 2014, I took a chance and started seeds indoors of our urban Seattle condo. Success: great germination of one year old seeds, hearty plants that I treated rather badly by planting too close together in my 200 sq foot community garden plot. Neglected plants during our July drought while out of town. Result: bountiful crop of wonderfuly versatile tomatoes. Not great for storage, but still had some to serve at Thanksgiving.
