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? 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.

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.

Interesting tomato not my fav

What are the pros? Prolific and productive

What are the cons? Dry, dull

Review:

A very interesting looking tomato! Grew very easily and produced many tomatoes. I just wasn't a fan of how dry they were, even for a paste tomato. When I picked them, they were so light for their size, I was almost afraid to turn them over in case I would discover the bottom was eaten or rotted out. They look super cool, but I'll be growing varieties that I actually like to eat.

What are the pros? Yes it gives a lot of tomatoes

What are the cons? won't ripen on the vine

Review:

I did get a lot of tomatoes but they would get black round rotten spots all over them before they would ripen. I then started picking them sooner to see if they would ripen better off the vine and the same thing happened. We did have a wet summer so that may have attributed to it but didn't have the black spots on any other of my variety of tomatoes.
