85 days. Big, flavorful 1-lb fruit are shaped like a giant, red strawberry. These beautiful tomatoes are loaded with a rich, sweet flavor. With only a small amount of seeds and juice, they are great for canning and sandwiches. This superior tasting tomato is a family heirloom from Germany.

What are the pros? Super heavy yields!

What are the cons? Bland taste and BER

Review:

This seedling went into the ground June 1st in my zone 6a garden and had set fruit by June 20th, and was the first tomato to ripen in my garden of 37 varieties, July 24th. The flavor had a hint of sweetness but was too bland and watery for my taste, however, this incredible plant didn't stop setting fruit during an unusual four week long hot spell averaging 93-105F degree daytime weather. It's now reaching 7' tall and still growing and setting new fruit. I lost count after 40 tomatoes, of which about half of them had BER. No amount of calcium would rectify the BER. Watering inconsistency wasn't the cause either as I have an timed irrigation system. I had two other different heart variety tomatoes also effected by BER. My beefsteaks and slicers were mostly uneffected by BER, so who knows?. Anyway, there are better heart tomato varieties out there! GRS may not be suited for my region or my particular soil. I have put this variety on my no grow list.

What are the pros? Great Tomato

What are the cons? Very low yield

Review:

Great tomato but very few tomatoes(2 to 4) per plant. I have one plant that did not set any fruit at all. Maybe I will try them one more time next year with fresh seeds. On the positive side is that the tomato plant is quite frost hardy and survived a late frost this year when most of my other tomatoes despite protection perished.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow & Sweet

What are the cons? Scratch easily

Review:

This is my favorite tomato ever! I tried a tomato sandwich for the first time last year and thought it was okay. With this tomato I literally can't eat enough tomato sandwiches or use enough of these for salads, etc. It is sweet and just overall pleasant in flavor. It's great by itself or mixed with other ingredients like sandwiches or sauces. Next year, I want to plant more of these and can the surplus! It did take about 6 months in order for us to get our first tomato. We planted the seed in March and just had our first ripe tomato in late August or early September.

Review:

I planted six varieties of tomato this year and the German Red Strawberry was the favorite for not only my family, but for everyone that I shared it with. Very sweet. The plant does seem to prefer to make fewer, very large tomatoes which occasionally crack. Still well worth it. Will be in my garden for the rest of my life.

Review:

Unlike several of the reviews psoted previously, I found this variety to be amazing. Very meaty and a wonderful flavor. I have grwon approx 18 varities over the past three years and like to grow different selections on an annual basis however i found myself purchasing the German Strawberry for the past three years. Have not experienced the clumping as mentioned earlier but the yields are low. Needs to be planted in the garden (not boxes) and supported to prevent vine splitting. Cannot wait for this years crop:)
