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:

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!

What are the pros? Flavor, easy to grow, prolific

What are the cons? Long time to mature

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.

What are the pros? Tasty and beautiful

What are the cons? Hmmm. None.

Review:

These were the most delicious tomatoes we've ever grown. Unfortunately, our chickens thought so too and ate more than we cared to share! We had some fungus problems with all our tomatoes last year and some plants didn't make it, but these came out beautifully after some soap/baking soda treatment.

Not my best tomato

What are the pros? Plants grew vigorously

What are the cons? Fruit had problems

Review:

It may have been our weird weather (very wet July, not particularly hot summer), but I didn't have good luck with Gypsy tomatoes. Plants grew vigorously up the trellis, but most of the fruit developed cracks and spots (fungus?) as they ripened. A different full-size tomato that I grew didn't have these problems. I tried to salvage what I could, but I'm not sure these are reliable enough for me to grow again next year.

What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? Green Shoulders

Review:

Gypsy was one of my favorites this year. The taste was amazing and production was great. Mine were mostly 5 to 8 oz. in size. The only drawback is the green shoulders.
