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? Productive and heat tolerant

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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Bland taste

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.

What are the pros? Very heat tolerant

What are the cons? Bland taste until fully ripe

Review:

This is a beautiful tomato. It was the first of my tomatoes to ripen, even compared to two cherry varieties. The flavor has kind of a smoky undertone. Don't eat it when it's yellow, though. It has very little other taste at that time. Wait until it's orange on the outside to have a wonderful sweet, low acid taste

Review:

These have thrived in my location - zone 10b, 5 miles from the ocean, morning fog, moderate sunshine, a bit of wind. I water deeply twice a week via drip so they stay dry, feed organic tom/veg food per instructions, and spray Neem (pure oil, not extract) often and early. They're the first of my large tomatoes to ripen this year. They look just like the pictures, red, orange, black, and beautiful inside. Really nice for slicing. Taste is subtle. Not a big blast of flavor (at least not mine). Sweet, but not too sweet, with low acid, so well balanced. A bit bigger than the 5oz advertised, coming in at around 9oz each, so about 2 per pound. Also pretty robust - no pest problems. Just a bit of gray leaf speckle of some sort on the bottom parts during our June Gloom overcast, but some copper fungicide and a few days of much welcomed sunshine took care of it. Definitely planting these again.

Review:

Suberb! Hands down one of the best tasting tomatoes I've ever had. Just ate the second harvested tomato for breakfast with a bit salt. :) I pulled it before the top was completely dark purple or very dark orange but, wow! Juicy and sweet but not too sweet. Light orange with pink center. It is a tall plant, 8 ft in mid June, planted in it's final container, a 15 gal root pouch on 3/12. 90 days from tranplant It has dark green foliage with small leaves in supported by the medium Texas tomato cages .There about 20 tomatoes right now. The coverage is thin so I didn't prune it, except the bottom 2 ft . It got early blight in it's first month and none of my others did with the same treatment. I had to water constantly and give extra CalMg. I was able to control it. It's still growing, still flowering at the top all green and it's a hot week of upper 90s all week and warm nights. Bc of the way I grow it needs a little extra TLC,but this is going to be a keeper. I am in Zone 8A,
