What are the pros? Color, size, multiple uses

What are the cons? None

Review:

I got these by chance 3 years ago. I had a live hate relationship with Roma's for paste tomatoes and now these arebmy goto tomatoes instead. Some are huge and I use them as slicers at the beginning of the season. Very low seeds so love that. I'll get a huge blast of them at the beginning of the season and then it slows down. Had some blisson end rot first year, now I make sure each hole has bone meal and egg shells put in with them amd I side dress all season. Neber had that issue again. I suggest these to anyone who needs a duel purpose tomato especially something that holds up to canning.

What are the pros? prolific, meaty, beautiful

What are the cons? 10% lost to blossom end rot

Review:

This is the first year I've grown this tomato in my zone 9b garden. The plant is very prolific; right now both of mine have at least 15 tomatoes on them, with at least that many already ripened and picked. About 10% have had blossom end rot, which is typical in my garden. The tomato itself is quite beautiful. It slips its skin very easily and keeps its color after canning, which is a bright pink-red inside. Hardly any seeds and pulp. No splitting. Tastes great too. This is going to become one of my go-to paste tomatoes, along with Opalka and Amish. As for weather conditions, June here is always colder than expected, and then July/August/September super hot (above 90 most days) with cool nights (60 ish most of the summer). Heat will last through October, so I expect plenty more of these tomatoes. Water is always an issue - we have none in the summer months - so they are watered with irrigation, but never enough. Despite these conditions the plants have done wonderfully. A winner for me.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Too hollow

Review:

I grew these out this year and got the most beautiful, gorgeous plants with tons of tomatoes that were ribbed just as the picture looks. My tomatoes suffered bottom rot, as well as the tomatoes were very hollow. More hollow than I’d like. Once I started picking, the tomatoes stopped! Almost like a determinant type. Still a great tasting tomato, but may not grow again unless I have too ;)

What are the pros? Tasty, takes heat well

What are the cons? Odd shapes, not huge producer

Review:

We had a rough year for tomatoes--drought, heat, drought, and then drowning rain. These tomatoes survived until the rain, and produced some very nice fruit. Nice, largish red tomatoes with a ribbed appearance. The ripe ones were great for slicing, and the green ones were great for frying. The fried green slices look great on a plate! These tomatoes weren't the heaviest producers, but they did produce steadily through a southern Mississippi heat wave. Maybe they'd produce a bit more if they weren't put through our weather! Also, about half of the plants produced oddly long fruit, almost an eggplant shape. We didn't mind too much, but maybe keep that in mind. Overall, a great tomato! Heat resistant, and at least mildly drought resistant. And, of course, tasty.

What are the pros? Flavor, production

What are the cons? Not enough!

Review:

We had a terrible summer for tomatoes last year. They were all off the a great start! Except jujube, of which I have yet to get a single seedling let alone tomato. Then the rain came. And stayed. We had a 40 degree day in the middle of July. But when all hope was gone these amazing gems pulled through. They were some of the only survivors. Luckily all the survivors tasted excellent. Gezahnte were the favorite by far. Followed by Rosso Sicilian, German Lunchbox, and Galina in no particular order. Those were the four varieties that survived. And they THRIVED. I mulch with wood chips and (usually) supplement watering only after the beginning of the season (unnecessary because the pouding we took from the rain). Other than that I'm pretty mean to my plants. They have to be able to deal with nature! All four of them will be returning to the garden based on flavor, yield, and ability to tolerate neglect.
