80 days. This heirloom was introduced to Seed Savers Exchange by the late Dr. John Wyche, who at one time owned the Cole Brothers Circus and used the manure of elephants to fertilize his heritage gardens. The 1 lb fruit is solid and smooth; the color is a glowing tangerine-orange that always stands out in the kitchen or on the vine. One of the best heirloom orange types for market, with its smooth texture and tropical, sweet taste. Heavy yields.

Review:

Note: Apparently Baker Creek mis-categorized these tomatoes as Orange instead of Yellow, even though their title has the word "yellow". They really are yellow. Anyway, this is a great variety. The produce fairly large fruits, and we use them as slicers (e.g. for hamburgers) as well as for canning. They taste great too. They seem to be quite hardy and not prone to blossom end rot. They have held up quite well in the hot Maryland summers we have been having.

Review:

I am in Zone 7a and grow the majority of my edible garden in grow bags for the convenience. I like not having to weed! While portability is a draw for some, mine are stationary because I use a drip watering system. This year, I put four Dr. Wyche’s seedlings (grown indoors from Baker Creek’s seeds) into a 7 gallon grow bag and set them out in April. For that sized bag, a max of two plants are recommended, but I thought I’d just experiment. I planted them in potting soil mixed with compost and I fertilize with tomato-specific food about twice per month. All four plants are about four feet tall now and thriving with huge tomatoes on them. Yesterday, I weighed the first one to ripen. It was gorgeous and came in at 23.5 ounces - almost a pound and a half! I ate half of it in one sitting, it was so delicious! Meaty, juicy, sweet with a slight tang, and oh so “tomatoey”. Today, I picked a 14-ouncer. I will grow these every year, in just this way.

Review:

In 2018, the President of our GARDEN CLUB OF OLYMPIA started too many plants for the size of her garden. She (TALKING THREADS MEDIA) gave me five of her excess plants -- all Dr. Wyche's Yellow Tomato. They did well in my garden and I loved the flavor (especially in BLT sandwiches!), so I saved seeds. In January of 2019, I started a bunch of those seeds indoors with heat mats and grow lights. In mid April, they were hardened off and by late April they were transplanted into the garden. Maybe a little too chilly (zone 8a), so they were also heavily mulched. This morning (6/26), I harvested the very first tomato! A bunch more tomatoes will follow in the next few days. Yes, I can recommend this variety!

Review:

I live in the desert and it is both a blessing and a struggle to grow plants here. I chose this variety of tomato because it was recommended by my favorite YouTube channel. Roots and Refuge Farm. I grew this in fabric grow bag and it looked promising as the plant was enjoying the springtime weather in March. As soon as the weather began to heat up, the poor plant began to decline in health. It did, however, manage to grow one big tomato and I pounced on that sucker as soon as it was ready. The flavor from this tomato was well worth the struggle with heat and disease. I will try this again in the late summer/early fall since we have 2 growing seasons where I live, except I will plant in a raised bed as opposed to a grow bag. I fertilized well this year, but I don't think it reached it's full potential due to being restricted to the fabric bag. You live and you learn! I will try this until I get it right!
