Interesting experiment
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 2.0
 

What are the pros? prolific, blight-resistent

What are the cons? late to ripen, tough skin

Review:

Every year I plant a few of Brad Gates' odd-colored varieties, and experience has taught me when to judge ripeness on the bronze and green skinned tomatoes, like Berkeley TieDye and Atomic Grape. Here in cloudy Ohio, the red and gold undertones never developed on the ripe fruit. Taste was nice acid/sweet balance, and I like the size - perfect for slicing into salads. The biggest drawback was the time to ripen - these were the very last of the season, about 20 days behind Pork Chop, Monutain Merit, and Garden Peach varieties. Just picked the last Atomic Grapes today, Sept 22. I was really happy to see how well the sprawling plants (held pretty far off the soil) did in resisting early and late blight, which the rest of my plants succumbed to by mid August.

Gorgeous yummy tomato
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Gorgeous color, delicious!

What are the cons? A couple tomatoes split

Review:

Most awesome tomatoes I've grown yet. Makes a delicious salsa or pico de gallo. Or just adorn a salad or eat off the vine (what I do) Green-purple variegated are tart, while the yellows are full bodied and the orange to red ripened are sweet. All the flavors of the rainbow in one seed packet. All seeds germinated. Folks thought the early plants were sickly looking because of the feathered leaves, but I transplanted these in early July and it's September now in SE Wisconsin and not a one has a yellow leaf. Two of the 15 plants had a few tomatoes that cracked and one or two tomatoes (fruit) had end rot, but there were spates of dry weeks here and I attribute it to that. Otherwise, I'm definitely growing these again. Didn't need to baby them at all. Fertilized twice the whole season. Great job, Brad!

What are the pros? great flavor

What are the cons? split

Review:

One of the tastiest ever, but most of them split before ripened.. This might have been due to the weather in the Pacific Northwest this summer, in SW Washington State I was able to salvage part of the crop by picking them just when they started to turn gold and finishing them in the house. I still have seeds and will try them again, but people who haven't raised dark colored tomatoes before may find them problematic.
