80-90 days. Attractive tomatoes are the shape and size of a Bartlett pear with a beautiful purplish-brick color; the fruit are perfect and smooth with no cracks. The flavor is absolutely sublime, having all the richness of fine chocolate. This was our heaviest producer for 2004. The plants produced loads of fruit all summer long. It has become a favorite with many seed savers and we are glad to be able to offer such a colorful variety. It is believed to have come from Russia, so don't ask me about the name!

What are the pros? Amazing Flavor, beautiful colo

What are the cons? Late for us

Review:

Two years ago we were not successful with the seedlings. This past year we planted them again based on reviews. They were later for us, but, so were most of the tomatoes this year. The flavor is amazing, the color is unique and beautiful. This tomato is on our permanent grow list for sure. We do a production garden that feeds lower income families and teaches families how to grow in the Rocky Mountains. This tomato was always the first to go from the basket of produce. Yum. Yum. Yum

Review:

Beautiful to look at, wonderful deep flavor, nice texture, easy to grow, and prolific. This is my first year ever with a "real" garden (not just a few herb pots on my porch) and my first time growing tomatoes from seed. I'm growing 9 varieties and this is my favorite full-sized tomato. I hope to have it in my garden every year.

Review:

A friend gave me an extra plant she started 5 years ago and I've been growing it ever since. It out-produces all other heirlooms I grow and has a rich mid-range acidic taste. It doesn't crack and rarely blemishes. I scratch my head at reviews that suggest it "won't win any beauty contests". Really? The shape is lovely and different and the interior is deep red and almost as meaty as a roma--though with better taste. It keeps producing until frost, so provides an abundance of green fruit, the diameter and texture of which is perfect for slicing horizontally and putting up in pint jars for green tomato pickles. If I have a ripe Rose, Brandywine or German Gold tomato , I will pick one of those first for for a BLT. But if I have salsa or a caprese salad to make or tomatoes (green or red) to can, I rely on the BJT's.

What are the pros? enthusiastic plants

What are the cons? couldn't win a beauty contest

Review:

This year, for the first time, I did square-foot gardening. I planted 8 plants in a 2 x 4 ft space (I know- really crowded, but I wanted to try it out). The thing is, because of weather and illness, I didn't plant my seed starts until the first week of June (central Missouri), and the seedlings were about 16" tall and spindly. I planted them anyway, al? the trench method where the whole stem is planted horizontally, except for the last 4". In no time I had beautiful, lush, STRONG plants with lots of blossoms. I will plant tomatoes this way from now on. I staked them on "A" shaped 6 ft bamboo poles. We got plenty of average-size fruit, but, of course, the yield would have been greater if the plants weren't crowded. The flavor was good, though not swooningly fabulous like some tomatoes are. They made wonderful sauce. Not the prettiest tomato, but I'm DEFINITELY planting these in 2015 as well.

What are the pros? Taste, Color

What are the cons? None

Review:

One of the most delicious heirlooms. It has a sweet finish which follow a delicious strong black tomato flavor. It is important to not that it does hybridize regularly so you will get many tomatoes that aren't quite what you expected. Nevertheless it is absolutely worth it.
