Sweet, rich and flavorful with strong citrus overtones made this Jere's favorite eating variety last season. We just couldn't get enough of the sweet, luscious, glowing orange icicle-like fruit that are like an extra long paste tomato. This variety also makes a lovely orange ketchup and a superb salsa. It was a definite winner, and plants were quite productive. In our opinion, this is some of the Ukraine's finest tomato breeding. Fruit have relatively few seeds.

Problems with blossom rot
Easy to Grow 4.5

What are the pros? Grow quickly and produce a lot

What are the cons? Major issues with blossoms rot

Review:

I planted 3 of these this year. Two in my garden on one in a pot. I have had issues with blossom rot in all three. I have 7 varieties of tomatoes in my garden and no blossom rot on the others. They grow like crazy and have more of a vine branch than my other tomatoes. I am still waiting for some to ripen that do not have blossom rot so I can comment on the flavor. I was hoping to make ketchup with them. I will most likely not plant these again.

What are the pros? Flavor, Salsa

What are the cons? Most sensitive to watering and

Review:

I have grown this variety from seed for two seasons now. It sprouts quickly and produces a long, "leggy" body compared to many other varieties I grow. It does not have very prolific foliage. I like the flavor and enjoy salsa made with it, but it is not and ideal plant for growing conditions in south central Kansas. I have found to be much more sensitive to watering issues than any other tomato I have grown. It will have blossom end rot when all my other varieties are doing fine. I think this is a water issue rather than a lack of calcium in the soil. It seems to struggle in extreme heat. I do like the flavor and productivity, but will not grow it in my zone again.

What are the pros? Great Flavor and fun texture

What are the cons? Plant can be a bit spindly

Review:

For me these are fairly early. I like the sweet/tart ratio. They are not the sweetest and not the tartest but just right for salad or just grabbing and eating. I put lots of these in the dehydrator and they work out really well for that. I will always have one or two of these in the garden. I should mention that later in the season they loose a little of their flavor but still good for dehydrating.

What are the pros? Taste.

Review:

These germinated inside very well. The taste is unlike other tomatoes I have grown. We really liked the flavor. These plants produced a lot of tomatoes. They matured at about the same rate as the other paste type tomatoes I grew this year. I had a terrible problem with the rains this year and these seemed to resist the fungus that plagued my tomatoes better than the other tomato plants I grew. These will be on my "must grow" list from now on.

Review:

We grew about 14 varieties last year and these were my favorite. They are sweet, meaty and soft. Easy to grab and eat! Very pretty too. These are not very tart or acidic tasting. They plant starting producing tomatoes fairly early and just kept producing all summer. Once it starting to cool off they did loose a little flavor.
