80 days. This heirloom was introduced to Seed Savers Exchange by the late Dr. John Wyche, who at one time owned the Cole Brothers Circus and used the manure of elephants to fertilize his heritage gardens. The 1 lb fruit is solid and smooth; their color is a glowing tangerine-orange that always stands out in the kitchen or off the vine. One of the best heirloom orange types for market, with its smooth texture and tropical, sweet taste. Heavy yields

What are the pros? Delicious, huge, and prolific

What are the cons? Didn't make it thru fall

Review:

The first year (2015) I grew this variety (one plant), I had bad luck. It tried its darndest to produce, but between disease, aphids, leaf footed beetles, and rats, I got not one tomato. But I determined to try this variety again this season, since I still had seeds left in the packet. I'm so glad I did. I planted three Dr. Wyche's this time around thinking I should at least get a few tomatoes. This variety produced more than most others, was sooooo delicious, and canned well too! I have many jars of these amazing orange tomatoes in my cupboard. Sweet and flavorful! A favorite on burgers, sandwiches, in salads, in salsas, sauced, and simply cut up with salt and pepper and maybe feta cheese sprinkled over top. Eventually the evil tomato-sucking beetles took over, so they were done producing for us in late September, but we got a few months of HUGE and delicious tomatoes. Dr. Wyche's, German Pink, and Hungarian Heart were my favorite tomatoes this summer.

What are the pros? Sweet, meaty, bountiful

What are the cons? So prolific it took over space

Review:

We love Dr. Wyche's tomatoes! They are mild, meaty, and not too acidic. After a good year, we found h ourselves with piles of these tomatoes. Good eaten fresh, on sandwiches, or even roasted. Some tomatoes did seem to have anthracnose impact them, but it had impacted all our tomato plants except the Cherokee Purples.

Review:

I have always had trouble with blossom end rot, and these are one of the few larger tomatoes that are not bothered by it., They are large in size and the orange color is intense. My kids loved them.

Tropical tomato

What are the pros? Tropical flavor

What are the cons? Blossom end rot

Review:

Large, healthy, robust plant that stayed pretty upright without a lot of help from me. Decent counter-life. Very unique tropical taste. As all my tomatoes do, it went into survival mode when temps hit 100 . New green branches and flowers are beginning to grow again now that temps are back in the 90s. No matter what I do, I lose about 1/3 of these tomatoes to blossom end rot. I'm sure the temps have something to do with it, but it's the only plant with such a high rate of blossom end rot; everyone else seemed happy with my watering schedule. A little bit of bleaching for the fruits hit with direct sun, but no scabbing.

What are the pros? Best Tomato in the world!

What are the cons? There's nothing NOT to like

Review:

Dr Wyche's has become our family's favorite tomato.These vigorous plants produce massive fruits until hard frost.They can be covered to prolong the season.The flavor is mildly acidic,VERY sweet & slightly floral like drinking a fine wine.Beautiful slices on sandwiches & #1 for fresh & canned salsa.These make a thicker salsa than most, even after a hot water bath.The color of the salsa is quite lovely.They are most excellent roasted & cooked down into paste or sauce,then frozen or canned.Dr Wyche's are lower in seeds & with a submersible blender makes for a wonderful smooth sauce. We have weighed some in @ 2lbs! They would make a profitable market tomato if sold by weight.The plants become tall with some hefty weight of the finished fruit. I recommend good support beyond metal tomato cages which will collapse. Another great quality is that they stay fresh for quite some time if kept in a cool, shaded room.I store them in cardboard flats on the floor.A proven winner & here to stay! :*)
