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!

What are the pros? Heavy producing and delicious.

What are the cons? none whatsoever.

Review:

We planted 70 tomato plants, of 15 different varieties, and 4 of those were Jersey Devil. they outproduced all are other tomato plants and are still finishing some tomatoes up(mid September). they are early producers in our zone 6, and were very fast growers once established from transplants. They were delicious in sandwiches and spaghetti sauces, our only regret is that we didn't plant more of them. our soil is not the best, but we mulched to improve soil and prevent disease. Ps: use as conversation piece, example:' Hey Pastor this devil is delicious, here have some.' you fill in the rest.

What are the pros? Plant was sturdy

What are the cons? Blossom end rot

Review:

Sadly, of the 3 plants I grew of this variety, all 3 had terminal blossom end rot, without any successful tomatoes. All 3 were in different parts of the yard in different soils with an identical tomato-specific fertilization regime. My carbon, cherry Roma and chocolate pear plants all produced crazily, it was just these that failed for some reason.

What are the pros? Huge fruit. Very meaty. Sweet

What are the cons? Slow to mature

Review:

Our Jersey Devils ended up 6-8 inches long, with a 1.5-2 inch diameter! Almost no seeds! Sweet, flavorful fruit. Kids eat them as fast as I can pick them :) . We only grew one plant this year (as a sample), but we will plant several next year. Germination rate was 91% /- we started over 80 plants.

What are the pros? Flavor, easy, production

What are the cons? None

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.
