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? 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.

What are the pros? High Germ Rate

What are the cons? Nothing Yet

Review:

I'm a first time gardener and started these indoors in July. (Pretty sure now that's not when I was supposed to start them) It's now mid-December and I'm having the flowers dry up and tiny tomatoes poke out! I did everything wrong with these (except fertilize with compost and compost tea) and they're still bearing fruit. I started them indoors in a laundry room with no light and didn't transplant in time. Transplants were root-bound and many seemed stunted (but healthy looking) after transplant. So far not too many pests except white flies, which didn't last too long. Will review again after fruit is ripe. Looking forward to trying these again the right way.

What are the pros? Too hot in Nola for these

What are the cons? No luck in Zone 9b

Review:

Grew these in 2015. Plants were lovely and healthy with lots of flowers but no fruit. Tried again in 2016, same problem. Tried hand pollinating both times. I don't think these produce in hot humid summers. I'm going to try Lucid Gem and Creole Original in 2017.
