86 days. Determinate. The latest "Must Have". It is simply outstanding! At last a banana-shaped paste tomato that is lime green and yellow striped when ripe! The flavor is rich, tangy and sweet. This will be a hot item for high-priced, groovy markets. So cool when mixed with Orange, White, Yellow and Red Striped paste types. Short, bushy plants produce these 4-inch long fruit in abundance.

What are the pros? Firm, meaty, great for canning

What are the cons? not for a bed

Review:

I saw a few reviews here that say lots of BER. When planting I put a cup of agricultural gypsum underneath each plant...so no such problems here. Very prolific plant ! Big fat sausage tomatoes hanging everywhere ( I grew 3 plants ). I make/can salsas, marinara and stewed tomatoes and this variety is fantastic for any of them. I still have about 5-6 dozen left after all my canning is done. I tried roasted tomatoes the other night, and once again these are a winner! The fruit sets early but takes a long time to ripen to the nice mustardy-yellow color. Most definitely I will grow again next year, but not in a bed. I will likley try a 5 gallon bucket elevated off the ground as these like to drape and sprawl everywhere. I used stakes and cages this year however they were not even needed. *** Also, had lots of 'sand flea' kinds of pests on the leaves but it did not slow the abundance of the plant at all.

What are the pros? really pretty and prolific

What are the cons? Blossom end rot

Review:

I was really excited to try these tomatoes but a little disappointed. Just before they are completely ripe they seem to get blossom end rot- same thing with my neighbor down the road, we have had a super wet year so that may be part of the problem. They are beautiful though- I am going to try picking them when they are a little underripe and putting them on the counter to ripen.

What are the pros? prolific

What are the cons? meh flavor, blossom end rot

Review:

This is my first year growing tomatoes and I grew 3 different types in containers. This was the only one that had major problems with blossom end rot. Other than that very easy to grow, got bushy low to the ground plants (which is exactly what I wanted for my container plants). For the tomatoes I didn't lose to blossom end rot, the flavor was not bad, but not amazing either. I can get equally good tomatoes from the green market for a lot less effort.

What are the pros? Hardy, prolific

What are the cons? Not good in a bed

Review:

Folks, when people said that this tomato is prolific, they are NOT kidding. I have one plant and just picked ten pounds of fruits from it, with dozens more still growing on it. That being said, it's a paste tomato, not a raw-eater. Flavor is bland off the plant, but turns into a quite a tasty can-worthy paste. A new keeper in my garden (but from now on, in a hanging pot).

Review:

Writing this review on July 6, which is very early in the tomato season here in the pacific northwest. Nevertheless, this vine is loaded with full-grown fruits that are starting to ripen. The plant does not climb, but rather spreads out like a pumpkin. Next year I won't plant it in the garden bed, but in a hanging basket (which would be ideal). There are actually more full-grown fruits on this vine than on the Stupice or Northern Delight vines that I planted at the same time, in the same bed, so I would rate this to be a super-early variety, despite the rating of 86 days.
