What are the pros? Sweet bi-color/hint of purple
What are the cons? Nothing
I like to try Brad Gates's tomatoes because they are so striking. I haven't liked several of them (like the Boar and Ti-Dye ones), but decided to give these a go. I love yellow and red tomatoes, but find they aren't all sweet. So I am pleased that Lucid Gem is sweet! Lucid Gem is producing well for me in high desert/Zone 6 with drip irrigation. I only amend my soil with compost and mulch with straw. If you pick when yellow they are still good; they are excellent when the flesh turns more towards orange and red. There are some color variations within the same plant in that some have more purple smudges on top than others, but that doesn't seem to affect the flavor. So my three go-to tomatoes from Brad Gates are Lucid Gem, Pork Chop and Cosmic Eclipse.
