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? 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".

What are the pros? shape, delicious

What are the cons? none

Review:

They have grown vigorously and produced a solid crop of beautiful medium sized ruffled fruit. A bit of green on the shoulders but it does not go through. A good balance of sweet and acid and very fragrant. They're more toward vermillion than fire engine red, but IMO they are very beautiful. No problems with pests or disease.

What are the pros? Quick germination, robust

What are the cons? None

Review:

I'm not getting fruit yet, so I can't speak for that, but this is one is a real go getter! It was up first, grew the fastest, and flowered big beautiful blooms first. If it continues at this pace and makes an abundance of delicious fruit I'll keep it permanently. If you have a hard time growing tomatoes, this one might be worth trying.
