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? 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!

What are the pros? Early, tasty, prolific

What are the cons? Too pretty to pick

Review:

Update** We tasted our first tomato last week from this plant and of the first of the summer. I have to say, this was the tastiest tomato I've ever had. It was Soo sweet and complex tasting, loved it! Great BLT maker, but it was Soo good I mostly wanted to just eat it by itself. It was big enough to share with my mom and my son...both also thought it was the best tomato ever. The sad part was actually picking it, as it was a stunning yellow that seemed to glow. We're looking forward to more, as we have tons of them ready to turn ripe any minute now :)

Review:

So it's May 15th and I already have 12 tomatoes on this plant- this was the earliest and most prolific producer so. The plant itself is healthy, sturdy and looks to be planning on taking over the world! It's already reached 5ft, I can't imagine how big it'll be by the end of summer! That said, I haven't seen/tasted the final product, but I'm impressed with the health and growth so much I felt I needed to give it a review. I'll update when my family has our first BLT!
