Named for the Gypsies who live in Russia, this is one of the deepest, purplest, maroon tomatoes we have ever grown. It has a gorgeous color and good taste. Perfect, medium-sized globe fruit make this one of the nicest dark varieties. A lovely and colorful introduction from the great Soviet plant breeders.

Review:

These came as a free gift along with my order. I planted 7 types of tomatoes last summer, and only 7 plants were from the Gypsys... OH MY we had a very short, cold and nasty wet/dry (it would rain and be dry within hours!)... all my tomatoes failed horribly except for a few "volunteer" cherries, and these Wonderful Russian Gypsy Tomatoes!!!! Out of the 7 plants I ate, gave away, and canned!!! Thank you so much, with the nasty new climate we are experiencing here in MI... I am planting saved seeds from last year, and ordering only 65 day or less seeds for safety from now on... I gave seeds to many to add to their gardens this year... of course only Gypsys so that they have tomatoes!!!

What are the pros? Flavor and beauty

What are the cons? Needs a lot of staking

Review:

These had a somewhat smoky flavor, completely unlike any other tomato I've ever gown. They have an initial tang that melts into a smoky sweetness, and are excellent for eating fresh. The vines are very branchy, much like cherry tomatoes, so stake them well, especially since they are extremely prolific and will be taken to the ground under the weight of the fruit. Slugs were a big problem, so leaving them on the ground like a Roma was not an option. It was a horrible growing season, we had temps still down into the 40's in early June, too much rain, then it got cold again by September. The best tomatoes ripen on the vine, so don't be disappointed if you also had lousy weather; replant and try again, they're worth it!

Review:

I received these seeds as a generous gift from Baker Creek, and planted four samples: not so good. Fruit was small, cracked easily, had no flavor, and was prone to Septoria. The other Baker Creek offerings, Dad's Yellow Brandywine, Black from Tula, Black Prince, Green Stripe Zebra, Spears Tennessee Green were all magnificent. Go figure.

Review:

This came as a free gift from Baker Creek. I was curious, so I planted it in the worst spot in my garden. Guess what? It is the best tomato of the summer! It produced early and often. And oh, is the taste great!

Review:

These seeds came as a free sample, so I tried them. This year I was finally successful at growing tomatoes from seed, including Gypsy, Better Boy, Juliette and Ildi. I harvested my first Gypsy this morning and it was great. Small, but was one of the first tomatoes on this plant down near the bottom. Good old fashioned tomato flavor, slightly sweet. Flesh a bit mushy, but as I said, first one. The plant itself is about 6 feet tall and has lots of tomatoes. There are some large ones as well, about 3 1/2 inches in diam. and tomatoes in all stages from beginning to ripen to blossoms and everything in between. Branches had to be tied to gutter downspout because heavy laden with fruit. Gave a 3 rating on early maturity since 135 days from seed planting to harvesting 1st tomato, but Better Boy's only 14 days ahead, and Juliette and Ildi (both grape varieties) are still green. Our soil here is nutrient poor, fine sand; most veggies take longer to mature; also HOT and humid, so planted early.
