This is the first time I ever grew Hillbilly Tomato's and I had a real problem with Ants eating them. I had (3) other type's of Tomato's and the Ants did not touch them. How can I keep the ants off and why are they eating my Mater's? Thank you

What are the pros? Heavy producer

What are the cons? attract deer

Review:

If this is the Hillbilly Potato Leaf Tomato, then it is fantastic. For some reason the deer ate this tomato and didn't even touch any of the other varieties I grew last year. Great sliced raw or cut into about 6-8 wedges then partially dry in a low temperature oven (200 F or less) pack into mason jars with dried marjoram, shaved fresh garlic and a good evoo. Freeze in jars and use them throughout the winter in pasta dishes or on a sandwich. Use the leftover evoo to make a oven-dried tomato vinaigrette.

What are the pros? nice color.

What are the cons? Not a hill billy

Review:

I agree with "carolyn 137" Flame is not an 'aka' name. And I've been growing hill billy from family stock of the west virginia variety. The picture here of this tomato looks to be a spin off or a cross of a hill billy. I have no issues with BER, and I do not have 'off season taste' like all these big time internet tomato growers claim hill billy has.

Highly prone to BER

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? Blossom end rot

Review:

This tomato, while early, was very prone to blossom end rot. I ended up getting rot in all the tomatoes off this plant. Out of 9 heirloom varieties, this one was the only one to get BER and consistently get it in every fruit. The plants were in a row with no difference in watering habits. The yield is also very low compared to other plants. One of the first to ripen and the taste is ok, but I would not recommend this for the Pacific Northwest because of the rot issue.
