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 mild taste

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
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

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! :*)

What are the pros? gorgeous, reliable

What are the cons? how to pronounce!

Review:

We've grown these for at least 4 years. They are beautiful at market and one of our best producers. We would love to know more information about Dr. Wyche, including how to properly pronounce his name =)

What are the pros? huge, vigorous, taste great

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are just great. The plants are vigorous and huge, no matter what happens with the other tomatoes. The fruit is early, large and wonderful tasting, not to mention just beautiful. They can split if I water them too much as they ripen - I tend to pick them a few days before fully ripe to protect the fruit. They are meaty for a slicer. Just my favorite for easy growing, early fruit and flavor. Now I need to find a red tomato I like as well!
