80-90 days. Large fruit are yellow with lots of red shading and streaks, much more red than many bicolor types. Fruit is very sweet and mild, great for a slicing tomato. Large, vigorous vines produce heavy yields. Given to a collector in 1994 by G. Fitzgerald. Pretty and delicious.

What are the pros? taste, color, slice appearance

What are the cons? all mature at once

Review:

Seeded inside in early April, picket almost all of them in mid-August, all ripened at pretty much the same time, with maybe 10-15% of total tomatoes picked at a later date. These were very beautiful, large to massive (I grew one 3 pounder) size tomatoes. Not supersweet, but plenty sweet. Ones picked earlier in August were not quite ripe. These grow into large size plants (at least 5 feet tall) and require big tomato cages. Enjoy full sun, moisture, compost for success; Summer 2015 in Minnesota was pretty wet and hot. Delicious sliced fresh into beautiful filets with ricotta, oil, and basil. Or just filleted into thick slices and fried in oil. For some reason it's not in the 2016 print catalog, but can still be found online.

What are the pros? hardy plants, excellent flavor

What are the cons? late to bloom and ripen

Review:

I had the good luck to find these at my local farmer's market the last couple of years. They are large, almost beefsteak size, with a funny, irregular ribbed shape. The colors are spectacular, pink and orange, red and yellow. But the rich, savory, sweet and tart flavor is really what stands out. The only downside is that they are available for only a short time. I hear it is because they are late to bloom, and the large fruit take so long to ripen. This problem might be avoided entirely in a warmer, sunnier climate. I started my own plants this year with seeds from a local farmer, and some from Baker Creek. Both packets of seeds have produced very healthy, free-standing plants. They are growing well in the Northern Pacific maritime climate. These plants do seem to respond to extra fertilizer and compost more than other tomato varieties. They started out growing slowly, but when I repotted and amended the poor soil they really took off.

Review:

These were truly lovely. I gave seedlings to a friend and we both got lots of inquiries about the tomato. Great flavour, great size, good production. Would grow again. Very pretty as in photo.
