75 days. Immature fruits show deep purple, almost black coloration, which is caused by high anthocyanin (an anti-oxidant). The 2- to 4-ounce, cherry-type fruit turn red when ripe, have a good, complex yet sweet tomato flavor. A descendant of the famed OSU Blue Fruit tomato. The pendant clusters of immature black fruit present a striking appearance in the garden! Resists sun-scald and cracking, lasting long into cool autumn weather when others have quit. Shows disease tolerance and great shelf-life. A classic is born!

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

These tomatoes are delicious. However you have to wait for them to fully ripen before picking/eating them. It's all about patience with this tomato. Picking these and eating them before they're fully ripe is like is eating undercooked chicken and nobody wants any of that.

What are the pros? Flavorful, beautiful, easy!

What are the cons? Slow ripening,

Review:

Many say the flavor is weak but you MUST be patient with ripening them! When the bottom of the fruit is red, they are ready! Pick when it's dry. These have a superb flavor, spicy, gourmet type that's amazing fresh, dried, or canned. Great for salsas, or Italian cooking!

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? was hoping for more flavor

Review:

These were started indoors and put out in 4x16' beds (2) with heavy organic compost and interplanted with borage. The plants were gorgeous, growing to over 6' and producing just shy of 500 lbs out of the 2 beds. They're beautiful to look at but take forever to ripen.... the birds love them and poop seeds all over the property so each year we have volunteers that sprout up and produce (on all varieties I grow). The fruits are smallish, are thick fleshed with cavities of juicy seeds, but I just couldn't fall in love with the flavor... very mild. I like a naturally salty flavor

What are the pros? Tangy flavor,pretty appearance

What are the cons? Slow ripening

Review:

Aside from the fact that the birds loved these, they were a big success for me: vigorous strong bluish tinged plants that never showed a trace of blight; early fruit set but then slower than most to ripen to red, which I soon adjusted to; and the plants are still chucking out fruit as we enter October, when I've pulled up all my other tomato plants. My thinking is these are best when fully ripe ie. red, otherwise they are a trifle sharp tasting. But they are so pretty on the vine and so numerous, that I will grow them from now on.

What are the pros? VERY easy to grow

What are the cons? Takes forever to ripen

Review:

I grew these for the first time this year, from a grafted plant I purchased. The fruit take forever to appear and even longer to ripen. Mine have been in since March 2015, & the fruit are only now (August) appearing in quantity. They remain hard, or firm, at all stages, even the ripest. The shell of the fruit remains quite firm while the inside is filled with very sweet juice. They're delicious, but take a long time. The plants seem VERY healthy, no ailments at all (we have lots of mold in the area). Require nothing more than regular water & a little food. I don't understand those who claim these tomatoes aren't tasty. They're VERY tasty. They're just slow. Perhaps pick them BEFORE watering? Tomatoes picked right after can be pretty awful, bland & insipid in flavor.
