Elongated cherries in clusters. The color (and flavor!) is a full-blown assault on the senses— lavender and purple stripes when immature, 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. We’re so pleased to offer this brand new release from Wild Boar Farms!

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.

What are the pros? Colorful, prolific

What are the cons? Need a long season

Review:

These are beautiful tomatoes. Inky on the outside, lime green inside turning to yellow when ripe. Not that I know exactly what ripe ones look like--I've had two. They're really tart when not ripe. I have tons of fruit hanging on my plants. Will they make it or will they run out of time here in zone 4.5 inland Maine? I would recommend these for warmer zones only.

Review:

I was extremely excited to grow these colorful tomatoes. They germinated well and set fruit quickly, but I was never quite certain when they were ripe. I'm a container gardener and would have to say that my two plants were pretty prolific considering the growing conditions, but once I finally got my hands on a perfectly ripe atomic grape I was let down by the flavor. I like to pluck tomatoes and eat them right away when they're at their freshest, and these do nothing for my taste buds. Not bad in flavor but nothing I'm excited to eat, either. I probably will not grow them next year in order to make room for other varieties that have more kick. On another neither positive nor negative note, they're much larger than a grape tomato and closer in size to a roma.
