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 terraced heritage gardens. Lion and tiger droppings were scattered to scare off deer! Dr. Wyche originally called this massive tangerine colored tomato "hot yellow" but the name was changed in his honor. The fruits weight around one pound each and glow like lanterns on massively productive vines. The fruits have a tropical fruit flavor, low acid, and make the perfect slicing tomato! Superior flavor and heavy reliable yields make this an excellent market gardeners choice! One of the best heirloom orange types for market, with its smooth texture and tropical, sweet taste. Heavy yields!

What are the pros? Color is stunning

What are the cons? Took its sweet time to mature

Review:

This is my third year gardening, and this time I have all my toms on one leader so I could space them a foot apart on the raised bed. This is the tomato I planted first on the bed because it grew ahead of the other varieties, so it has the most of the several fertilizer that I placed on the whole prior to planting. it grew rapidly with really thick trunk. Fruits are baseball sized that took forever to ripen. Sweet Flavor. Color is stunning. But 1out of 5 trees did not fruit at all.

What are the pros? Beautiful, early, easy

What are the cons? taste is too mild for us

Review:

This was my first ripe tomato of the season. It has produced well so far, and the tomatoes have been big & beautiful. I prefer an acidic tomato though, and this is not acidic at all. I find the flavor quite bland. To be clear, they don't market it as an acidic tomato. I won't plant it again, but that's just due to our taste preferences. Again, it is lovely & a decent producer.

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.
