First red tomato
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Heavy yields/ Amazing taste

What are the cons? some cracking

Review:

These were our first red tomatoes of the season. They even ripened before the short season determinate tomatoes. The taste is amazing and the plants were heavy setting even in our very short growing season. The taste is sweet, not mealy, and slightly smoky. We did have some cracking on a few of the tomatoes, but it was only about 10% of the total yield and was likely due to overwatering on my part. We planted 12 different heirlooms this year with 4 plants each to see what would grow well in this region. By far chocolate stripe is the winner and will be mass planted in our garden next year.

So they damage easy, the bugs love them, and crack. But they produce tons, taste soooo good and have good size. A couple csa members go crazy over them each week. The taste is great.

Amazing taste small plants

What are the pros? flavor, hardiness

What are the cons? none

Review:

We have grown these for 3 years and will keep planting them in the future. Hardy plants, we rarely lose them to blight compared to other strains and the compact plants put out large amounts of medium-large tomatoes. The tomatoes make an amazingly dark and sweet canned salsa and are great on sandwiches or just by themselves. Often it is the first ripe tomato in the garden also. Highly recommend this tomato!

What are the pros? tasty, small plants

What are the cons? none

Review:

We have grown these for 2 years in our garden and we will continue to plant them. Small plants but heavy amounts of tomatoes, awesome in salsa or sandwiches. When we had other tomatoes with blight these tended to outgrow the blight and keep producing after other varieties had died.

What are the pros? Tasty, vigorous

What are the cons? No dislikes

Review:

I have been growing this tomato for 3 years. I kept the seeds in the fridge for storage and after 3 years are still vigorous & have great germination rates (even better than some fresh seeds). The plant has taken over my plot before, and somewhat smothered out neighboring varieties. Today is July 6th & I had 2 ripe choc. stripe tomatoes. 1 of the first the produce & produces heavily. Seeds keep well.
