What are the pros? tasty, quickly matures
What are the cons? none
Foggy summers are the norm here, and because of that, I've limited myself to growing cherry tomatoes because past attempts at growing slicers have had dismal results (mealy fruit). But not anymore! These tomatoes were true fog busters, as another reviewer wrote, and I started getting tomatoes in June that were firm and sweet despite the cooler weather. I usually can't harvest my cherry tomatoes until September! I finally have a reliable slicer to put on sandwiches, salads, or to eat raw with just a sprinkle of salt.

What are the pros? Early, Sweet & Very Productive
What are the cons? Pest magnet if not trellised.
We have an approximate 90 day frost free season so it was natural to look for an early season cultivar. Our transplants were started on March 5th with a 93% germination rate at 82 degrees F without a heat mat. The plants went into the ground after potting up to 1 gallon (.75) pots on May 30th. Second week of June we were hit with 34 degree overnight lows and 5 consecutive days of chilly weather. Even though covered I didn't have the opportunity to heat these and they did just fine. Since the advertised height across the board is about 3-4ft I figured they would be a good "first row" plant that wouldn't need all that much trellising. My vines are over 5' long and going every which way even across the ground. Slugs are a huge fan of the lower hanging fruit, the damaged fruit are attacked by wood lice and millipedes after. Mid-July start to harvest 5 quarts a day between 4 plants now. This is a golden cultivar with heavy sweetness and easy sauce capability when vine ripened.

What are the pros? mid-size tomato, tasty
What are the cons? none, really
I got a very late start on my garden this year, and so I direct-seeded these tomatoes into the ground in early June. By the time these really got going, it was pretty much fall, but man did they produce! I was impressed with their taste and also the nice mid-size. Great for salads. I also put some in soup. They weren't affected by the pests until very late in the season, and by then the cold weather was shutting the garden down anyway. I'm ordering them again this year and will start them indoors and plant them earlier in the season!

What are the pros? early, great flavor, tolerant
What are the cons? somewhat small
Grew these in NE WA for 6 years - tolerates funky weather, reliably earliest tomato by July 1. Great salad tomato.
What are the pros? Early, good flavor
What are the cons? small, poor keeper
I'm in zone 5 and planted these (8 wk old seedlings) at last frost date. Took two months to bear (so, for me, "55 days" meant 55 days from transplanting, not from seed). FIrst fruits in mid July were still 2 weeks ahead of my other tomatoes. Fruits were large cherry size (about 1.5") born in clusters, with a bit of green on the shoulders when fully ripe. Flavor was surprisingly good. I will plant them again.
