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.

What are the pros? Unique shape and productive

What are the cons? Susceptible to BER

Review:

I have grown this tomato for the past three years. First two years I had no problems and got a good harvest from my plants. The plants grow upwards faster than most and so need a tall pole or overhead wire to train them properly. Flavor is well balanced and they work well as a salad tomato or for cooking. This year, my plants are suffering quite badly from blossom end rot. It had been a very dry winter and spring, so there has been less moisture in the soil for the plants to find. Other tomato plants nearby are mostly free from BER with my watering regime, but I'm losing most of my Orange Icicles. If choosing this variety, grow in moisture retentive soil and water more then other varieties.

What are the pros? High yeilds

What are the cons? Blossom end rot

Review:

We grow many different varieties of tomotoes...2 years in a row we developed issues with blossom end rot only with this variety.... Finally tested our soil pH which was under 6, and added gypsum (mineral version of calcium sulfate) to the soil which corrected/resolved our issue quickly. This tomato has great flavor, is incredibly productive and is a definate favorite for salsa and canning in our home.

What are the pros? Sauce, taste, prolific

What are the cons? Diva seedling

Review:

By the end of the summer this was one of my favorites of the 13 tomato varieties I grew last summer. Prolific, early, delicious, versatile, meaty. It was a downright diva as a seedling, though. Difficult/slow to germinate with a low survival rate and prone to rot. But we worked through our problems and got through it.

What are the pros? early and prolific

Review:

This is the third year I've grown these and they've performed well each time, hot or not. The beautiful orange-yellow color stands out in a salad, they don't get watery or mushy in salsa and sauce and they're not quite as tart as regular reds.They start early and keep producing until frost, with very little splitting. The plants are typically pretty loaded with them. Like most other paste tomatoes, they will need watering during dry spells to minimize blossom end rot. I don't save seeds because I plant very densely and pretty much everything is cross pollinated so I'll buy fresh seed for next spring.

Problems with blossom rot

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.
