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.

Review:

We are in zone 8A. Cons: long time to mature Tomatoes a little on the small side Pros: These are some of the best tasting tomatoes I have ever had! These produce very meaty tomatoes which are wonderful for snacking on and making pizza sauce! Just be patient for them to come in and they produce like crazy!

What are the pros? N/A

What are the cons? Nothing like picture

Review:

I was very disappointed by this variety. Despite what the photograph suggests, my fruits are just a mottled red-orange color with barely any indigo. They look more diseased or underripe than anything else. The taste is okay and the yield is slightly lower than average. Doesn't do what's advertised, and offers few to no benefits in exchange.

What are the pros? Large quanity per plant

What are the cons? Thick leaves/ Vines

Review:

We're on the 7b/8a growing zone boarder. I started these seeds very early in my greenhouse, about mid January. Once transplanted in late April they took off. They were blooming by early May and I had to hand pollinate for a couple weeks before the pollinators really showed up. It's early June and I've already picked 2 early ripeners. The rest of the plants are loaded and will be giving us more very shortly. Due to humidity we try the prune extra vines and greenery from our tomatoes to help with air circulation and reduce fungal issues and blight. I have to prune these often. Tons of thick leaves. I do fertilzer with some fish emulsion but give these plants tons of egg shell and bone meal as well. I've pulled about 5 tomatoes with blossom end rot. No big deal though as there are easily 50 tomatoes per plant. Plus the taste is wonderful. These will be great in salsa.

Review:

2019, zone 11b . 220 planted, 200 grew. Dropped in ground at a month old, took fast enough and grew well with ALaska FIsh Emulsion, By the time they hit six feet tall, they still had not produced tomatoes, whereas the other varities we are growing had no problem producing tomatoes in the same soil at two feet or less. Disappointing that we did not test the variety before putting so much work into them. Our area has few pollinators and the flowers on Dark Galaxy are large and harder to polinate. We are pulling them all out at 3 months and replacing with cherry varieties that do great herein the tropics with 84 degrees day in and day out. We will keep the few plants that are producing long enough to harvest a half dozen tomatoes. Would only recommend to those in the mainland continents with plenty of pollinators. Should be staked up with fence.

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.
