90 days. Pendulant, pointed, pepper-like fruit is slow to set on but yield very heavily. 5-6-inch, ruby-red, paste-type fruit is very meaty and have but few seeds. Incredible flavor. This variety was another pillar of the New Jersey tomato industry, and is an ancestor to “Jersey Giant.” Jere has been growing these for 20 years and they are a favorite!

Review:

Many tomatoes don’t thrive in the PNW - I usually just buy tried and true varieties that handle our cool early summer temps, but I always like to experiment. Great germination, fast growth. Kind of wilted when I set them out in May from the cool weather we had thru June, but they hung in there. Then wham! Once the heat came on they went gang busters. Big, tall, healthy plants w high fruit set. Produced up to frost. Fruit was big w a fabulous full tomato flavor. Great for sammys as well as cooking. These won a place in the annual garden for sure. I’ll give them a little extra protection this year and look forward to this summer’s crop.

Blossom end rot issues

What are the pros? Good past tomato, with issues

What are the cons? Blossom end rot, slow to ripen

Review:

I grow a variety of tomato plants every year, some tried and true, and some new. I try to choose plants that are good for the Willamette Valley, which tends to have cool nights all summer. This was my first try for Jersey and I won't try again. There was a lot of blossom end rot, and a friend I shared plants with was also disappointed. The fruit that made it was great, but as promised, this is a 90 day tomato and in this climate, probably not the best choice. I do start all plants in a cold house and 7 varieties of tomato I grew did great. I've been growing tomatoes for 17 years and do rotate crops and apply lime, etc. I won't recommend it for this area, but sounds like a good choice for longer growing seasons.

What are the pros? My wife and I both Loved

What are the cons? I did battle pests with this

Review:

Hello, This was our best tasting tomato this year hands down. produced well until late season pest control became a problem for us late season with this variety I kept finding little pin holes in them that would turn to worms. I thought these guys were going to be my best producer till this showed up right after a bug heat wave in the summer. I was constantly battling them the rest of the season on this plant. I did not use pesticides but i did spray with diluted dawn soap about 3-4 times a week. from that point on we were losing about half of the set fruit on this plant. it was really a shame :( Pros: Best tasting Tomato this year. Cons: Pest control issues Sum up. If you don't mind using some chemicals or spending lots of time when in the heat of the summer babying it. This would be a great option for a tasty tomato! I will definitely be planting this again and considering some new pest control options

Review:

The Jersey Devil did great for me last year. I think everyone of my seeds germinated, which really surprised me. I had so many plants that I had to give some away. Most of the tomatoes were large and all of them were thick and very heavy. These tomatoes are great for canning and I sold many pounds of these at the local farmer's market. Later in the summer I started having some of the peppers rot on the end like peppers do, so I started picking them a little earlier and it solved the problem.
