75 days. Delicious purplish, egg-shaped fruit are smooth and perfect. They have no blemishes and have flavor that tops the charts. One of the best varieties we carry for salsa, fresh eating, and preserving. This variety will make market gardeners and chefs happy, as this Ukrainian heirloom is at the top of its class and a favorite of our grower. The plants are very productive; fruit weigh about 6 ounces. Introduced to the USA in 1980.

What are the cons? Fruit split

Review:

Excellent mater, great taste for fresh eating and canning. Not enough rain from mother this year could be the reason for some cracking?

What are the pros? Prolific, tastes like bacon

What are the cons? Doesn't jump into my mouth

Review:

I had these seeds several years before planting them. They were the only paste i had on hand this season so started two. They are over six feet and covered with fruit. Just picked my first one, anomalous at 3/4 pound, and couldn't believe the taste. Thinking it must be my imagination I asked my six-year-old to taste it and tell me what it tasted like. The answer matched my own: BACON. Mind blown. Harvested 20 seeds from this meaty bad baby. Can't wait to grow again next year.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow

What are the cons? Slow Growing

Review:

We started growing seedlings in March and in late August had our first ripe tomato. I don't know if that is normal or not though. These taste wonderful and are definitely on my list to grow next year as well. We are overall satisfied. They do take a while to ripen and caterpillars love them. I had to keep them sprayed with peppermint oil and garlic to keep the bugs off.

My plants are still producing fruit almost into September in Nashville. Nice flavor, low juice makes it good for both sandwiches and sauce. I will grow this one next year.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? cracks, taste, air pockets

Review:

This was one of the 2013 varieties that I grew. I will not be planting this one again. I will be planting the Japanese Black Trifele again, however. I found these to be smaller than I wanted and not as flavorful as expected. There were also a lot of them with cracks and incomplete inside fill. They also seemed to get a little paste like in texture later into the season. Maybe you will have better results. I have many other varieties to try so this one did not make it on my 2014 list.
