60-70 days. Slightly elongated little cherries with the most outrageous striping in lime green and bronzy-purple! Crack-resistant fruits are produced all season long on plants that are unfazed by temperature extremes. The flavor is complex but sweet. Excellent holding quality makes this newer type outstanding for market. The bar just got higher! From Artisan Seeds.

What are the pros? Flavor and looks

What are the cons? Slow to ripen (in mtns of CO)

Review:

Started indoors as you have to do with all tomatoes in mountains of colorado. Planted in containers b/c it is a longer season variety for where I live, and in containers I can protect by moving inside for hard frost and guarantee a longer growing season. Did quite well in large container staked and caged. Produced a lot of delicious sweet fruit, great for salads and also roasted them. Loved the look of the fruit, very neat. Will defiantly grow again.

What are the pros? Produces in abundance

What are the cons? none

Review:

We had a cool spring and summer in south eastern Indiana in 2014. This tomato did well and produced abundantly. It even lasted through 2 light frosts. It was the most popular at the Farmer's Market this past year. If left to fully ripen, it has one of the best tastes for a grape tomato. It usually sold out in the first 2 hours of the market. We will grow this one again in 2015.

Beautiful tomato
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Appearance

What are the cons? Flavor is so-so

Review:

A very beautiful tomato on plants that are vigorous and have heavy foliage cover. The fruits have good tomato flavor--but lack much in the way of sweetness or acidic tang. The skins are somewhat thick as well. Might give it another shot to see if it tastes better in a different year.

What are the pros? Color, taste, resistant

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are by far the best tomatoes I have grown this year. I started them indoors and put out even a bit early for this zone, and these plants are thriving. These are the only tomatoes in the garden that have zero splitting, and zero signs of pests or disease. The flavor and texture are the perfect combo for fresh eating, and I want to share these with everyone because of the crazy metallic glow that they have. I will plant these every year from now on!!
