This new Brad Gates selection is an absolute masterpiece! Slicing-type fruits are stunning, inside and out! This sister selection to Blue Beauty yields loads of 5-ounce, beefsteak-type fruits, very meaty and containing very few seeds. First they ripen yellow, then more toward orange when very ripe. Incredibly attractive with the black anthocyanin splashes really contrasting with the lighter colored skin. The sweet, juicy flesh is marbled yellow to red, and the flavor is fruity and superb. Unusually heat-tolerant; the fruits are great keepers. You can’t go wrong with this one!

What are the pros? Sweet bi-color/hint of purple

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

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.

What are the pros? Taste, Low Acid, Colors

What are the cons? None

Review:

These tomatoes are great! I grew 3 three plants, and next year I will probably grow 5. I only planted 1 seed per starter plug and got 100% germination. These tomatoes are well balanced in terms of taste, with a subtle sweetness that balances out the low acidity. Be careful not to over fertilize as it increases the cat-facing of the tomatoes (the holes/deformity that form). But everyone loves these and people keep asking me where I got them.
