Brad's Atomic Grape Tomato

Our Favorite tomato! 75 days. Elongated, large cherries in clusters. The color (and flavor!) is a full-blown assault on the senses—lavender and purple stripes, turning to technicolor olive-green, red, and brown/blue stripes when fully ripe. Really wild! Fruits hold well on the vine or off, making this amazing variety a good candidate for market growers. Olive green interior is blushed with red when dead-ripe. Crack-resistant fruits are extraordinarily sweet! Wispy foliage looks delicate but belies these plants’ rugged constitution and high productivity. This release from Wild Boar Farms won best in show at the 2017 National Heirloom Expo! These range some in size from a large grape to plum-sized. AMAZING!

What are the pros? Color, easy to grow

What are the cons? Slow to ripen

Review:

I started these seeds in early spring, and had nearly 100% germination of the seeds I planted. The plants grew steadily, I wouldn't say terribly quick but we also had unusual lack of rain in the late spring. Fruiting was plentiful, but as many others pointed out it was difficult to tell when to harvest. Ripening takes a LONG time in comparison to growth and fruiting. A ripe Atomic Grape should be orange/red with dark blue and green stripes. Though the green/purple phase is certainly beautiful, they are hard, sour, and do not ripen well off the vine. My largest tomatoes were about 2 inches in length and plump. Once the tomatoes were finally ripe, the flavor varies from tomato to tomato, some were bland, but others had a subtle but rich dark flavor akin to darker tomatoes. I will grow again simply because they make my friends and family gawk at the beautiful colors, but will not plant as many.

What are the pros? Quick growing

What are the cons? Taste lacking

Review:

Had four of these in my plot this year. Sprouted well, lots of fruit, but I found the taste lacking. In fact, I so strongly disliked them that I refused to pick any more.

What are the pros? Large plants, lots ot tomatoes

What are the cons? Slow ripening, flavor meh

Review:

I started these from seed in the spring with heat - germination was OK. (Which wsa good because there were so few seeds in the packet.) Once planted out, plants grew sort of spindly (which I expected based on catalog/seed packet description.) Later they became much more robust. Plants growing in an Earthbox are 7-8 feet tall! Plants were very slow to set fruit - not until July - but eventually put on lots of tomatoes in attractive clusters Fruit is larger than expected (more like apricot size than grape; larger than Juliet, slightly smaller than plum tomatoes.) I never really got the full technicolor effect - these are more like Green Zebra with black shoulders. Eventually the bottom turns orange-y with green stripes. (Some rotted on the vine because I couldn't tell they were ripe, interior still mostly green.) Flavor also reminiscent of green zebra - more on the acid/tangy side, none have been especially sweet, texture frequently mealy. Don't plan to grow them again.

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? cant tell when ripe

Review:

I only got a few tomatoes off this plant mainly because I couldn't tell when they were ripe. They go from green to purple and orange. When is check them, sometimes they would be too soft or too hard.

What are the pros? Amazing flavor, fun & colorful

What are the cons? Low germination rate

Review:

Started these gems along with 6 other varieties in February. All received same treatment. Could have been some difference in soil. This and one other had less than 50% germination. However the few plants that made it to the garden grew well. Strong plants. No disease problems. Fruit set was slow at first and took a very long time to ripen. For weeks I got only a few at a time. Numbers improved throughout the summer. Now it is the 1st of October and plants are still producing. We love the flavor and the contrasting colors when mixed in a tomato salad with red and yellow cherry varieties. Well worth the wait. Will definitely be growing these again. Yum.
