75-80 days. A super productive and early maturing Italian sauce and slicing tomato. The deeply ruffled fruit make the flavorful, bright red sauce that embodies Italian cuisine. Indeterminate plants are super vigorous; an all around hardy heirloom. The unusual fruits sell themslves at market. They look so beautiful sliced on a sandwich.

What are the pros? fast growing, great yield

What are the cons? sensetive

Review:

Very strong plant, grows really fast and produces lots of beautiful tomatoes! the fruit itself was a bit too acidic but had a deep flavour, i had 10 plants and had so many tomatoes i made a sauce out of them, though i had to add lots of sugar cause it was sour. the tomatoes were smaller than i expected, but over all a great plant for begginers!

What are the pros? Super prolific!

What are the cons? Very small for me

Review:

These tomatoes grew super well in my garden! The seedlings started out much smaller than my other varieties but caught up just fine once outside. I don't know if I did something wrong but all of these tomatoes are extremely small and very acidic - they weren't good for fresh eating at all. I was really disappointed because I'm not much of a canner and these tomatoes require work for them to be edible to me. If you are a sauce maker then these tomatoes would be great! I love the shape of them. They are super fun to look at!

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? Late Maturing, Low Yield

Review:

I had high hopes for this variety but it didn't perform well at all for me in the PNW, even though we had an exceptionally warm and early summer. It's late August and I only have 3 green fruits. For any other hopeful PNW backyard growers looking for an early, heavy-yielding full-sized tomato, I've had great success with Ananas Noire.

What are the pros? an excellent tomato for salad

What are the cons? Not a good in a greenhouse

Review:

an excellent tomato for salad and other raw recipes. Not a good producer in a greenhouse. I grow several varieties ofTomatoe in a greenhouse, this one does not do well as a plant or as a producer. Outdoor they are excellent. .

What are the pros? Vigorous, easy, fun to grow

What are the cons? Spoil quickly

Review:

"Vigorous" is an understatement. I transplanted a few foot-tall spare plants on June 28th, figuring we'd get some tomatoes by frost & we weren't using the garden space for anything else so why not. We only did minimum soil prep, didn't fertilize after that, and were gone for a week in both July and September. By the middle of July they had outgrown their 5' x 2' chicken wire tomato cages, the 15th of August I was staking them to multiple 8' poles while standing on a milk crate, and in September I couldn't reach to cut the tops short to force the fruit to ripen before frost hit. In the meantime six plants gave us more tomatoes than we could handle. I gave away multiple bags, made three batches of gazpacho, a few caprese salads, a lot found their way sliced onto sandwiches, many were eaten off the vine... My only complaint would be that the fruits spoiled very quickly. As for the taste - I've been told "meaty, low acid, tomatoey".
