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.

Review:

We added this tomato variety to our farm after talking to Brad Gates at the Heirloom Food Festival in 2015. It's been a dependable tomato for us and some of our restaurant customers favor it over other varieties we grow. This tomato holds on the vine well, but it also holds after picking for a very long time. It can sit on a counter for more than a week and not spoil, which is unusual, compared to other heirlooms we grow.

Really enjoyed growing this tomato for the first time last year. It was one of the best producers. The most productive "blue" variety I have tried. I used it to can as well as make tomato pie.

What are the pros? Slice and dices well, meaty

What are the cons? Average flavor

Review:

Love this tomato for its versatility in the kitchen. If you like fresh salsa and slices that don't make your sandwich soggy, this is for you! The flavor is not the best I have ever had but still good. This has been the only variety I have grown in 5 years consistently and we usually choose 10 or so varieties to grow each season. Haven't found one to replace it in our kitchen so we will continue to grow!

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!
