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.

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.

Review:

I started these indoors and transplanted them. They had a hard time getting established in the heat and were slow to produce but once they were established they did great. They make beautiful salsa and sauces.

Review:

I purchased this as a plant from a local organic grower. It was root bound and took a little bit to get started. It was spreading and bushy to the extreme. After a few ties to the stake, it was impossible to contain. As a result, some of the fruits were hidden and did not ripen as they would have with better care. Still it was prolific and a delicious sauce tomato. Mild acid but a mellow rich taste. I combined them in a pot with my overabundant Brandy-wines when I got overwhelmed with bounty. This year I intend to prune vigorously to try to capitalize on their productivity. I want to try the pink icicles as well this year.

Review:

This tomato struggled during our record hot central texas summer last year. but once temps cooled to 70s-80s, the yield went up. However, we had to harvest them just after Thanksgiving because our first threat of frost. Luckily the tomatoes ripened well in the house. They are quite sweet and go well in salads. Will be planting again
