90 days. Winner of the 2005 “Heirloom Garden Show” best-tasting tomato award. These have won taste awards coast to coast in the last few years, so we were proud to locate a small supply of seed. The fruits are smooth, large, and beautiful, being one of the darkest and prettiest of the purple types we have seen. They seem to have an extra dose of the complex flavor that makes dark tomatoes famous.

What are the pros? so far none

What are the cons? see review

Review:

I started all 25 seeds and they were slow to sprout and grow, even with a heat mat and grow lamps. I got them to transplant stage and I lost all of them except 2 which were dwarfed by the size of the other tomato plants I started at the same time. I'll try them again because everyone says how good they are!

Review:

I only got one tomato from this plant, but it was one of the best tasting tomatoes I ever had. I typically plant 15 varieties of tomatoes in my garden every year. The color was beautiful deep red-black with gorgeous red-black skin.

What are the pros? Good flavor, keeps well

What are the cons? Low productivity

Review:

Stocky plants that need a lot of support, room, sunshine, and sustenance in order to do well. I had to truss up the growing tomatoes in order to keep the stem supporting them from breaking. These require a lot of attention and care, and caterpillars love them when they're green! They're also very susceptible to disease. You need to baby these plants. BUT! It's totally worth it. The tomatoes that these plants produce are tomatoes that you want to smash your face into, because they're that amazing. You'll have to fight off a line of other people who want them, if you let the secret out. Also, the harvested tomatoes keep for at least a week without degrading - far longer than any other tomato I've grown.

What are the pros? Fabulous Flavor Beefsteak

What are the cons? none

Review:

Set well with daily tickle Not vigorous roots or vines No matter, because 4 waves of huge, tastey beauties were produced. The flavor when grown in mild conditions, many 70 degree days, is a subtle fruitiness They look just like the picture when sliced.

What are the pros? Taste early and heavy producer

What are the cons? Spoils you for other tomatoes

Review:

Grew these last year, northern California foothills. Very hearty plants that were the first to produce tomatoes even beating the Early Girls. They produced heavily all season Taste is outstanding but be warned they will spoil you for eating other tomatoes. If you give any to friends you will be be beseeched by them begging for more.
