Dark Galaxy Tomato

A Delicious Galactic Beauty--With mottled skin resembling a scene from deep space, each fascinating fruit depicts the depth and beauty of the night sky. Dark Galaxy bears 2-8 ounce fruit that is flattened, with red and orange stripes covered in random speckles, and layered by deep blue. The vines themselves display a purple blush and grow 5-6 feet tall while producing good amounts of the stunning tomatoes that begin to ripen in about 75 days. The taste is a perfect balance of tangy-sweetness--so juicy and refreshing! Each fruit is a unique work of art, sure to be a garden and tabletop centerpiece! Another stunning tomato from Brad Gates.

What are the pros? Interesting color

What are the cons? Low vigor, unremarkable flavor

Review:

Started these seeds early in a greenhouse. Germination was OK. The plant took a while to really get established, it never got more than 3 feet tall. It was one of the last tomatoes to set fruit out of the 21 different varieties I grew. Once it started producing it never stopped. I would not say it produced a lot but there was always at least one fruit nearing maturity on it. They did not ripen fast and ranged in size from an egg to a small fist size. The skin was a bit thick and it didn't strike me as a very flavorful tomato. They also never cat faced or cracked where many of my other varieties did. With all that being said it was a very attractive tomato and I enjoyed giving them away to family and friends because of their oddity. I didn't expect much as far as production and flavor because this plant was clearly bred as a novelty which it does well. Would I grow it again.... no but I did enjoy it.

Review:

I can't understand how people can dislike this tomato. I grow 17 different tomatoes during 2018 and this is one of my topp 5 favs. The size varies from small to almost beef sized fruits. The fruits has alot of meat and the parts with the seeds in it is smaller, I also liked the texture, it was firm. The maturity time was okay, it was in the middle, slower than red and yellow ones but faster then green and beef tomatoes. I gave some seeds to my friends and they agreed that these are a new favorite tomato. They do look stunning and I loved them, will grow again and again! I live in Sweden in zone 5, pretty cold climate, I use green house for tomatoes. We had a super dry and hot summer and many tomatoes splitt, this did splitt to, but held up better then Pink bumblebee, Tasmanian blushing yellow or Tigrella.

What are the pros? Looks like in picture

What are the cons? Hard to start

Review:

I was super excited for these but I couldn’t get the plants to start. The seeds would sprout but the seedlings were weak and failed to thrive. I tried two rounds one inside with grow lights, then a second time outside when it was warm enough. I started these along with about six other varieties from Baker Creek that did very well and were giant plants heavy producers. All the other plants were started under the same grow lamp. Very disappointed but I will try again next year.

What are the pros? Pretty, unusual, flavorful

What are the cons? Ripen late,

Review:

Summer of 2018 I grew these with at least a dozen other tomato varieties in raised beds. These were the worst performers out of the bunch. The vines didn't get as large as some other varieties and the fruit was very slow to ripen. I was able to eat a few tomatoes fresh, but most of the fruit was picked before the fall frost and allowed to ripen indoors with other varieties. Instead of ripening like all the other tomatoes 100% of these got all wrinkly and just dried out without ripening. It was disappointing. I may try growing again, but will probably start this variety at least a month earlier than the other varieties to see if that helps increase yields.

What are the pros? Super photogenic and tasty.

What are the cons? Little smaller than expected

Review:

This was my favorite newcomer to my garden. Mine started out with dark purple shoulders and green blossom end, transitioning to ripe as depicted in the photo above. It was really interesting to watch the tomatoes ripen. My plants grew really well, despite an extremely hot and dry summer and being exposed to some windy conditions. I have heavy clay soils, that I did not amend and the plants still did will. Very little issues with cracking. Tomato flavor was great! I plan to incorporate a more heavy duty method of trellising my plants next year, as the plants set heavy with fruit.
