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? Tasty, takes heat well

What are the cons? Odd shapes, not huge producer

Review:

We had a rough year for tomatoes--drought, heat, drought, and then drowning rain. These tomatoes survived until the rain, and produced some very nice fruit. Nice, largish red tomatoes with a ribbed appearance. The ripe ones were great for slicing, and the green ones were great for frying. The fried green slices look great on a plate! These tomatoes weren't the heaviest producers, but they did produce steadily through a southern Mississippi heat wave. Maybe they'd produce a bit more if they weren't put through our weather! Also, about half of the plants produced oddly long fruit, almost an eggplant shape. We didn't mind too much, but maybe keep that in mind. Overall, a great tomato! Heat resistant, and at least mildly drought resistant. And, of course, tasty.

What are the pros? Flavor, production

What are the cons? Not enough!

Review:

We had a terrible summer for tomatoes last year. They were all off the a great start! Except jujube, of which I have yet to get a single seedling let alone tomato. Then the rain came. And stayed. We had a 40 degree day in the middle of July. But when all hope was gone these amazing gems pulled through. They were some of the only survivors. Luckily all the survivors tasted excellent. Gezahnte were the favorite by far. Followed by Rosso Sicilian, German Lunchbox, and Galina in no particular order. Those were the four varieties that survived. And they THRIVED. I mulch with wood chips and (usually) supplement watering only after the beginning of the season (unnecessary because the pouding we took from the rain). Other than that I'm pretty mean to my plants. They have to be able to deal with nature! All four of them will be returning to the garden based on flavor, yield, and ability to tolerate neglect.

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.

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.
