80-90 days. Stunning and unique. These long, pointed red fruit have wavy orange stripes! People were really excited about this one at our last Heirloom Garden Show. It's a specialty grower's dream; just what chefs and today's buyers are looking for; a perfect midsized beauty with brilliant color, meaty flesh and excellent flavor. This variety was developed by John Swenson.

What are the pros? Sweet, but not too sweet.

Review:

This tomato is now one of my favorites. I grew it bc of the unique color but will continue to grow it bc of its flavor. Sweet flavor, gorgeous and very productive. Good in salads and for sun-dried (oven-dried).

Review:

I had poor luck with this in previous years in our 'high desert' climate (hot summer days, cool nights), but tried once more in 2014. Did great last year...days were cooler than in recent years, so probably a factor. Had buckets and buckets of fruit right up until mid-October. Great to cook with.

Review:

How much do I love these? Sooo much! A huge hit with my housemates. A vigorous grower even in our small urban yard, producing beaucoup gorgeous tomatoes late into the season. And they are so gorgeous! The shape, the color, the wavy stripes--far out, man! A staple type for me from now on.

What are the pros? Beautiful tasty fruit

What are the cons? Very susceptible to septoria

Review:

I usually grow San Marzanos and had one plant die after a wind storm, so I picked up a Speckled Roman plant at the local farmstand to replace it. Even though it went in later than the others, the first tomato was ready about the same time as the San Marzanos. I love the look and taste of these tomatoes but by the end of August, the plant is pretty much dying from septoria leaf spot while the San Marzanos are going strong. I really wish it were just a little more hardy because I'd grow at least half of my plants with these then.

Review:

These tomatoes are beautiful, but I had problems growing them in South Louisiana. Not only did they have a hard time setting fruit in the heat and humidity, but I also had a problem with end rot. Out of my 5 heirloom varieties I tried this year, they were the only ones that had a problem with rot. The few tomatoes I was able to salvage are beautiful, meaty and taste great cooked on top of pizza! I agree with other comments that these plants need support, they get tall. I’m really glad I grew these this year (loved showing them off the neighbors), but I don’t think I will try them again. (The humidity drives our heat index into the upper 90s to lower 100s.)
