75 days. Bred at Wild Boar Farms, and named for the famous author and activist who has contributed so much to the sustainability movement! Small green fruits are uniquely top-shaped, with the most pronounced blossom end “beak” that we have ever seen! Color is green/yellow stripes. Flavor is mild and sweet. 2- to 4-ounce fruits usually grow in clusters. Amazing!

What are the pros? Unique shape, prolific, yummy

What are the cons? Blossom-End Rot

Review:

Here in MN, we had a late, cold, wet spring in 2014, which resulted in blossom-end rot in nearly all of my paste-type tomatoes. It seemed like these tomatoes suffered the worst, however. I have read other reviews mentioning that these tomatoes are especially prone to blossom-end rot, and that was true for me. They were quite early and so prolific, but most of the first fruit were unusable. They kept on producing right until the first frost, and after things dried up later in the season, I still got quite a few of these tomatoes. Their flavor is unique, mild, and sweet, and they are just too cute. I will be trying them again this year, with extra soil amendments and hope for a better season!

What are the pros? taste, look

What are the cons? not many

Review:

Have not had a good couple of years with tomatoes but this was a bright spot last year. Good yield (in comparison to my others) and a unique taste. Very rich and "tomatoey". I am not one to can but bet this would be a really good one to can for not only taste but size.

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

These did not look like the picture:(( taste was not great, but next year could be different. I don't condemn a tomato in one year, just wish I knew what tomato this was....it was green striped and pear shaped....

What are the pros? Flavor Color Shape

What are the cons? lack of production

Review:

We will try this again next year. The plants (3) were spindly and almost unproductive. The few fruits that matured were excellent in taste and shape and well as color. Of the 154 tomato plants we grew this year this type was the only one that did not do well. We will try again next year and hope they do better

What are the pros? beautiful coloring, nice taste

What are the cons? blossom end rot

Review:

Overall, a good tomato---good taste and very,very pretty fruit. I planted 9 tomato varieties this year, and this was the only variety that had an issue with blossom end rot. But it's interesting enough that I'll try planting these again next year.
