80 days. Here is a lovely paste-type, originating in Naples, Italy, but arriving by way of Frau Isabella Buhrer-Keel of Basil, Switzerland. Lavishly pleated fruits come in all sizes up to 6 ounces, sometimes a bit more. The name means "toothed" in German, and slices certainly present this appearance. Semi-hollow fruit are firm and mild-tasting; great for stuffing. Very productive, even in hot, dry condition. Photo courtesy of www.abundantacres.net

What are the pros? versatile

What are the cons? none

Review:

Great addition to sauce: flavorful, very dry, firm and meaty flesh, few seeds. Seem resistant to bruising and likely to transport better than many heirlooms. Fun for stuffing or roasting- the slices look very fancy and it is somewhat hollow. One year the fruits were sparse and the next year we couldn't keep up, so can't speak to how prolific they'll be. I was disappointed not to see them in the catalog and came to the website to find them this year- we usually grow about 7 tomato varieties and this has quickly become a must-have.

What are the pros? Grew at average speed.

What are the cons? Prone to bottom rot

Review:

I grew these in a few different gardens locally and saw the same thing: before ripening, succumbed to bottom rot and blight while other types nearby were fine.

What are the pros? Pleated!,very few bugs/rot

What are the cons? none, but not for all purposes

Review:

I love my Gezahnte tomatoes. So beautiful and pleated with great insect and disease resistance. Heavy fruit set as well. I made spaghetti sauce with all of my various varieties of tomatoes and whenever I would pick up one of these to de-seed and get ready for roasting I knew it would be satisfying-- large size and little to throw away. They are somewhat hollow and have much less juice than beefsteak types. The seeds are also contained neatly in a sack that looks like a brain (so my kids said :6). Nice firm flesh, good flavor and one of our biggest garden successes. Not as juicy on your sandwich as other varieties, but really beautiful when those pleats are sliced. Along with "Abe Lincoln" (from another company) and "Big Beef VFFNTA" these were our best varieties this year and we will continue to grow them. I grow many varieties and "Best varieties" for us changes, but these have 3 years of success for us.

What are the pros? cool to look at

What are the cons? blossom rot easily, small

Review:

easy to grow, but we had wet weather and then very dry for a few weeks in the upper 90s, the fruit are still small and slow to turn red, and many of the first had blossom rot,i hope to use them for the seeds at least for next year. fruits are smaller than regular ones i have grown before. but it was fun to experiment with new varieties.

Prone to blossom end rot

What are the pros? Prolific, pretty, tasty

What are the cons? Blossom-end rot

Review:

I grow 15 different varieties and this one is the only one that consistently gets blossom end rot. Can be controlled with heavy doses of calcium but makes it not an easy one to grow.
