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 fruit is smooth, large, and beautiful, being one of the darkest and prettiest of the purple types we have seen. It seems to have an extra dose of the complex flavor that makes dark tomatoes famous.

What are the pros? Flavorful

What are the cons? Slow growing

Review:

My favorite variety of tomatoes. It has a natural smokey salt and pepper taste to them. I don't run into the cracking issues with Carbon that I do with Black Krim tomatoes.

Tried this variety a second year after a first year showed promise.Taste was outstanding, but the seedlings are the first to wilt, and mature plants seem to be fragile.

What are the pros? Great Flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

This tomato is now my favorite homegrown variety. My pre-teen daughter wouldn't touch a tomato prior to growing these! I have had them sliced with our fresh Red Cabbage that we grew this year, I've also made fresh homemade salsas with these, and already this fall my wife has made fresh homemade vegetable soups with the ones we canned. I'm back to order more of this variety. Can't wait to start the growing season next year!

What are the pros? Extremely tasty, easy grower

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I have never traditionally been a huge fresh tomato fan. I've always liked tomato products, just not fresh tomatoes. I don't know what it is about this tomato, but I was obsessed with it all summer long. The plants germinated and grew on beautifully. I had 6 plants and harvested TONS of tomatoes. They grew so well here in 6b. They will certainly be a staple for me from now on. If I'm not planting at least 10 of these babies every year, I'm not doing it right. Love it so much!

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.
