When these little Oriental jewels ripen, your eyes will be stunned with color. They have pretty violet-purple fruit with iridescent green streaks! Fruit weigh 1-3 ounces, are smooth and have good tasting, dark purplish-red flesh. This variety will also amaze you with its yield: it's not only high, but incredibly high, being one of the most productive tomatoes we have grown. A great variety for marketing. Introduced to you from China along with its twin sister "Topaz"; see our yellow tomato section.

What are the pros? Nice color when ripe

What are the cons? Mealy, tasteless, rots easily

Review:

I anxiously awaited some ripe violet jasper tomatoes to add some new color to the tomatoes on the farm stand. These ripened about 2 weeks after the cherry tomatoes and Dad's Sunset. As soon as a few ripened I picked some and tried one. The taste and texture was so bad that I didn't even finish one slice of it. Since the plants did seem to produce a lot of tomatoes, I tried to add them to sauce or to my dehydrated tomatoes. No good for either of these purposes either. Once peeled and seeded there is maybe a half teaspoon of usable pulp. They have an overabundance of extra large seeds considering the small size of the tomato. When I returned from a 4 day vacation in August, the plants were loaded with tomatoes, but many were rotten before they ripened. I picked about 5 gallons of tomatoes, green and ripe, fed them to the pigs, and then tore out the vines to make room for something I can eat.

What are the pros? very pretty colors

What are the cons? horrible texture, no taste

Review:

First year with this variety. I have to say it was the worst tomato I grew out of many varieties. The texture tasted like hothouse winter tomatoes, very pulpy, no juice, no taste. Prolific producer but will feed them to the chickens..Definitely not something I will grow again to eat.

What are the pros? color, growth, maturity

What are the cons? taste was so so

Review:

Great seed germination and plant growth. This was the first tomato to mature of the 6 varieties I planted. Fruits are a little bigger than a golf ball with very cool color. Taste is ok but not great. Inside is almost black, which I liked. Later fruits in the season had some black spots on the skin.

What are the pros? First to ripen

What are the cons? Bland flavor

Review:

Even when I let the tomato stay on the vine until it fell off, the taste was still bland. It was meaty for such a small tomato, so I added it to my roasted tomato recipe. There are many tomatoes with better flavor to choose from, I won't grow this one again.
