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.

Review:

These tomatoes were my first heirloom. I did a lot of research on how best to care for these and was very pleased in both how much fruit these plants produced as well as how indescribably delicious these tomatoes were/are. I started these (a little late) in a seed tray in the kitchen until they were about 9 inches tall, then planted them into my raised bed so that that only the top 3 or 4 inches were above ground. In and below the hole i put some fish scraps from fishing, and some egg shells from the chickens as well as some mycorrhiza that i found on amazon. With adequate water and sun these plants really thrived. The absolute best part about these tomatoes is their flavor, which is much sweeter than you'd think, but expansive in that they taste like they are 90% of the way already to your grandmothers famous marinara sauce. I will grow these every year.. from now on.

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.
