80 days. This recent Brad Gates introduction was selected from a cross between ‘Beauty King’ and a blue tomato. Fruits are modest beefsteak-type slicers, weighing up to 8 ounces, and the flavor is as good as their outstanding antioxidant content! Gorgeous, deep blue-black shoulders make this unique among slicing types. Excellent potential for market, as the fruits hold well on the vine. Sunburn and crack resistance are a welcome bonus.

What are the pros? Produced well

What are the cons? Flavorless

Review:

We were excited about these, given the nice coloration of them. However, the chickens got to eat most of them since we did not care for them. They were the largest tomato we grew this year, and the picture color is very accurate. The taste was pretty blah (let's just say they did not get to grace our BLTs) and not of interest. The plants did produce very well with palm-sized tomatoes. Will not be growing in the future.

What are the pros? Tasty, Productive, Beautiful

What are the cons? None

Review:

What a great tomato! Right from the get-go there was excellent germination and the seedlings were strong and vigorous. The plants were easy to manage and train up trellises/cage. The plant is very productive, with bunches of 5-6 tomatoes hanging from different parts of the plant. There doesn't seem to be any susceptibility to diseases. The tomatoes seem to transport and store well. The taste is fantastic; at first it has a classic tomato taste but then there's this nice little burst of sweetness on your tongue. I'm definitely growing this variety again next year!

What are the pros? Pretty color; tastes good

What are the cons? Hard core

Review:

I love Blue Beauty because it tastes good and looks good. Love those black shoulders! All the ones I harvested this year though had a hard core, but flavor was still good. I was standing in the kitchen cutting out the core and slicing the tomatoes up to be used for sandwiches, and I couldn't stop eating it! Blue Beauty has it's own unique flavor, I think. I like it very much, and I will continue to grow it! Thank-you Brad Gates for this awesome variety! You have a God-given talent for creating unique tomatoes! Keep it up!

Review:

Growing 12 tomato plants in total, 6 of these are Blue Beauties. I am growing organically in two 4'x8'x18". In my zone 8a/8b in the south east we experience heavy rainfall and high humidity in the summer with hot temperatures. This can lead to lots of fungal related diseases which seems to happen to my tomatoes every year. However, this year I am seeing the same diseases in a few of my other plants but not a lick of it has touched the Blue Beauties! They were the first to produce, first to ripen, and the tallest vines in my garden. Brad Gates really must know what he's doing because I'm getting hundreds of these medium to large fruits with no imperfections. I am very very pleased with these tomatoes. Beautiful in appearance, apparent fungal disease resistance, and heavy producers. I will be growing these again next year for sure. As a 100 percent organic and companion planting gardener, they have been a dream come true. Planting with SAN Marzanos, basil, sage, lemon balm.

Review:

Well, the tomato season for this year is officially over. Tonight and the following three nights will be well below freezing and the vines will not make it. Thankfully, the heirloom tomatoes will live again next year. Last year I harvested seeds from two of my favorite tomatoes and we had a good crop. I especially love the 'Blue Beauty' variety that have kept producing until today (11/19) when I have sliced the last ones for dinner. The blue beauty is a good producer and I will be planting more plants next year.
