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? Taste, looks & heavy crop

What are the cons? None

Review:

Best crop of tomatoes I've had in years - even with late start, cool summer and not the best (sandy) spoil. Lots of perfect fruit, no blemishes of any kind, no splitting, even came back strong after caterpillars ate almost every leaf. And flavor - just wow!

The Gem of my garden

What are the pros? resistance, flavor, production

What are the cons? none worth noting

Review:

This tomato was a real gem. Not only was it incredibly tolerant of the awful heat and humidity down here, but it had a wonderful, constant production and fruit set. Foliage isn't near as thick as some others, and plant stays a manageable size... very easy to care for and work with. All of this accounts for why these were the healthiest plants in my garden. This is by far the most unique tasting tomato ever. Upon eating a slice of this beauty, the first thing I said was "tastes jut like a fruit!". It is very unique with a wonderful texture- very juicy. Another reason I just love this tomato is it' shelf life! Ripe tomatoes can easily last 2 weeks on the counter. What a winner. Will grow this head-turningly beautiful tomato again and again!

What are the pros? Outstanding flavor

What are the cons? Curly leaf issues

Review:

This is one of the most unique-tasting tomatoes I've grown this year. The Gem stands out for its savory, curry-like flavor and makes a great tomato salad. My seedling grew well and yielded a dozen tomatoes. The only snag was that the bush had curly leaf problems. However, the bush still flourished and I can say that the Gem is a keeper for next year.

What are the pros? Flavor, size, looks

What are the cons? Slow to ripen

Review:

This is the first year I've grown these and today I ate one of these for the first time. It looked just like the image in the catalog and was medium-large. I loved the flavor even without salt. It was sweet, a little tangy and complex. Kind of like a light-medium bodied wine, it might be most appreciated by people with delicate palates. Not that looks matter that much, the fruit is absolutely stunning and will impress your dinner guests. The plants are just moderately productive, which I think has a lot to do with my soil and weather, but definitely worth dedicating some space to. The plants themselves did not get huge. The green fruit develops a black cap early on and ripens very gradually, which maybe a good thing, I just get impatient. It's worth the wait. Also worth noting - two of the plants were next to a Brandywine that got some kind of blight, which I cut out, and they resisted it. Well done, Brad Gates.

What are the pros? So beautiful! Great sweet flav

What are the cons? Not many fruit per plant

Review:

I was so excited to grow these tomatoes this year! They are beautiful! Great germination rate! I planted 2 seeds straight in the garden and both grew. Only con is that their aren't many fruits per plant. One only has 3. My other has 5. I'll plant again next year and hope for better yields.
