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!

Review:

This is my first year growing lucid gem, and I absolutely love this tomato. It is absolutely gorgeous outside and in, with purple shoulders, and orange and red flesh/skin. I wish I could upload a photo! I think the flavor is best when the tomato is mainly orange, and at that point it's a very delicious balance of sweet and tart with great tomato flavor. They do turn red, and at that point they're too sweet for me. They seem to last forever one the counter. I haven't had any issues with the plants, and it's fairly productive. I only grew 2 plants this year but I've gotten a decent supply of fruit off them. I definitely will grow it again and would recommend lucid gem.

Review:

A gorgeous & delicious Tomato!! These tomatoes germinated well and now that its summer they are producing delicious tomatoes. We love the flavor, they have a great texture and a unique look/color. It has been easy to grow, and healthy. It grows quit tall, over 6 ft already. It has become a favorite this year. I will be growing it next year!

Review:

You should try this tomato!!!! This tomato is the perfect tomato for my garden this year. I was a little worried about spending $4 on my tomato seeds but they have grown well and no pest problems! They have a complex sweetness with a salty tanginess. Something totally unique to this tomato. We haven't had a lot of rain this year and once mature they haven't required a lot of supplimental watering. This is the favorite tomato, so far, for me and my family!

Review:

I find tomatoes to be a challenge because of our hot and humid weather. Each year I try a couple different ones, just incase I find a good one that does not fall apart on me when the humidity hits. I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The plants grew and grew. The crop of tomatoes was plentiful and tasted wonderful. I did meet with some blossom end rot early on but supplemented the plants with some Ca and we were off to the races. At this time of the year the only things happy in the garden are melons, crowder peas and okra. My other tomato plants gave up the ghost a couple weeks ago but while these tomato plants look the worse for wear with the heat, rain ( we have had almost 60 inches already this year), stink bugs, etc., they are still setting tomatoes at the top. Great tomato. I will definitely plant it again next year. I may even start some soon and see how they do as a fall tomato.

Review:

These tomatoes were a huge disappointment. Foolishly, these were the only large tomatoes that I decided to grow this year. The picture looked so good and the description made them sound so tasty that I couldn't wait until they were ripe. The plants I started early have grown well. The plants that I planted a little later are barely growing or dying. So don't start them once summer starts. I could not have been more disappointed with the harvest. On the outside, they look like the picture, but there is no "liquid gem" in the center. They have almost no taste. I'm so bummed. Thankfully my cherry tomatoes are plentiful and yummy enough to soothe my disappointment. * Here in Raleigh our soil is clay, but I have enriched mine over the years with lots of compost so it's not too bad.
