60 days. Determinate. Early Polish variety whose “rigid stem” habit doesn’t require staking or pruning. Handsome potato-leaf vines are very productive, yielding 3- to 6-oz round to oblate fruits. These were very smooth and blemish-free in our trials. The fruits are well flavored and excellent for canning, sauces or paste.

What are the pros? Early, compact, dwarf, tasty

What are the cons? Not a large beefsteak

Review:

I'm fond of the E. European dwarfs because they work well in pots or in closely planted rows and do not overwhelm limited garden space. This tomato grew to 2 ft for me and produced heavily. I did not have problems with blight. However, with such short plants, it's important to water in a manner that prevents the foileage from staying wet all night, especially in a humid summer with frequent rain. I also mulch my plants which prevents splashing and contact with soil microorganisms. For me, Betalux produced well from early mid-season until fearly all and the fruits were flavorful. However with medium to small tomatoes on a short plant, you need to plant several if you like a lot of tomatoes. Solitary plants not shouldered in by others also require minor staking and a simple bamboo stick will do. This would probably be a good variety to try for growing in a greenhouse. The reason I rated it a 4 out of 5 stars is it's a good tomato, but I reserve 5 starts for absolutely the best.

What are the pros? Yields

What are the cons? weak flavor

Review:

These produced sizable ripe tomatoes before my cherry tomatoes were ripe. The plants had great yields throughout the season. I was surprised at the size. I'm in a "zone 4" that is really a zone 3 so tomatoes are not always expected to ripen. These guys did compared to other varieties we grow. We will be growing these again. Next time I will support them better as the fruit load caused some to tip over. Flavor isn't the strongest but I'll take ripe tomatoes!

What are the pros? flavor, compact harvest window

What are the cons? requires staking

Review:

They germinated well and transplanted well. I have had no pest or disease issues with this plant. The plants are short and determinate and ripen all within a week or so of each other on the same plant. As others have noted the plants do need staking if you don't want your fruit on the ground. I was getting between 8 and 15 tomatoes per plant. These tomatoes are acidic and have a wonderful flavor although they tend towards the smaller side. I have only had one or two as large as a roma most are about halfway between romas and cherry tomatoes. That said they are my customer's preferred tomato and sell out each market. They can be prone to cracking with too much moisture. I have people asking me for more of these tomatoes each week and hope Baker Creek offers them in bulk pricing next year.

What are the pros? early, meaty, tastes good

What are the cons? needs staked, gets blight

Review:

I purchased this seed because it is stated to not need to be caged or staked. Since we have such trouble with staking, I thought "perfect!" Well, that was not accurate. They are a short plant, and very bushy. At first they seemed like it would be perfect. However, once the tomatoes started growing the plants basically split down the middle and fell in every direction, resulting in all tomatoes being on the ground. We will try them again next year from leftover seed and stake them, see if it helps. If not, I'll change to no, would not recommend to a friend. Pro's: early tomatoes, meaty, good taste Con's: very susceptible to blight, does require staking

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? lots

Review:

I purchased these seeds as something different to Roma's. The size of these tomatoes are a bit larger than grape tomatoes. I can sauce every year and I won't be able to do that this year. See, we moved and haven't tested our soil at our new house so I couldn't plant a variety of anything. I was banking (my fault) on these seeds producing enough tomatoes where I could can enough sauce until next season. These tomatoes are barely big enough for a salad. I'm so disappointed.
