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:

I am a gardener in the Pacific Northwest, about zone 8a. I had a real struggle this year with an onslaught of snails eating all my tomato seedlings. I went whole hog, too, and must have had about 50 seedlings eaten; it was intense. But one variety could not be stopped by these proverbial hungry hippos. The Blue Beauty! Although other Brad Gates varieties also had high germination rates and tried their best, it was Blue Beauty that came out the strongest out of all 17 varieties I am growing this year. Very sturdy, healthy variety. Can't wait to eat them once the fruit ripens for me.

Review:

I've been growing tomatoes successfully for 25 years and this is my favorite tomato ever. It is easy to grow. It produces a very large amount of tomatoes. It will continue to grow and produce long into the fall. The tomatoes are delicious, sweet and juicy without being too juicy. I love that you can pick the tomatoes and they last a long time after picking. They don't get mushy the way many heirlooms, do. Everyone I have shared plants with feels the same way as I do about these tomatoes. Best Ever

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!
