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 fruits that are 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? 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.

Best flavored Tomato
Easy to Grow 2.5
EarlyMaturity 1.0
 

What are the pros? Best both roasted and in sauce

What are the cons? Wish they were larger

Review:

Love this tomato. First time growing. Was very slow to mature (does not like cool nights). This is the most meaty tomato I’ve grown. Very little juice. They are wonderful both roasted and in tomato sauce. They were very high yield but very slow to maturity. There is only a few days between green, then ripened and soft (partial rotten). I think it’s because we had night temps a few times down to 60 degrees.

What are the pros? Great flavor, tons of fruits

What are the cons? cracking

Review:

I grew 22 tomatoes plants this year and Dark Galaxy outshined them all. It produced tons of fruit in our scorching hot summer. The only problems I have with it were , as it produced more fruit they were smaller and smaller. The first 5-7 were close to the pound range. They do crack more than some of the other varieties we grew with our latest downpour. That said the flavor was superb and these will be a permanent fixture in our garden.
