80 days. This Brad Gates selection is an absolute masterpiece! Winner of the sweetest tomato award at the 2017 National Heirloom Expo. A slicing-type with stunning fruit, inside and out! This sister selection to Blue Beauty yields loads of 5-ounce, beefsteak-type fruit, very meaty and containing very few seeds. First they ripen yellow, then more toward orange when very ripe. Incredibly attractive with the black anthocyanin splashes really contrasting with the lighter colored skin. The sweet, juicy flesh is marbled yellow to red, and the flavor is fruity and superb. Unusually heat-tolerant; the fruit is great keepers. You can’t go wrong with this one!

What are the pros? Best tasting tomato ever!

What are the cons? I only planted 1 this year

Review:

We grew Lucid Gem from a plant I got from work this spring (I work at a nursery & we start a lot of our own tomatoes with Baker Creek seeds every year). It was among the first group of tomatoes to ripen on the vine. When we picked the first one and ate it, we were stunned at the depth of flavor! Sweet, tomatoey, and delicious! We will grow these EVERY year from now on. We're going to the Heirloom Expo next month & I'll be picking up my seeds for next year's crop. This year was a test-grow year for us, and Lucid Gem is going to be on our list every year from now on. It was seriously that good.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow, Super Sweet

What are the cons? Not Super Hardy

Review:

Of all the tomatoes started this summer, Lucid Gem is the household favorite. The flavor and appearance of this tomato is out of this world - super sweet, very flavorful, and gorgeous to boot. This plant is pretty hardy, although not quite as hardy as other varieties I’ve grown - some of our plants go hit by blight this summer and this one got hit, but not as hard as the Russian Purples. Luckily we planted several in the yard so we still have a steady supply of tomatoes! This is definitely a variety I will be growing year after year.

What are the pros? Gorgeous color, quantity

What are the cons? Taste, texture, BER

Review:

First off, it should known that I grow tomatoes in sub irrigated containers which may have impacted my results. The first attempt got me a healthy plant and plenty of healthy looking green tomatoes with blue shoulders. BER became a problem quickly though none of my other tomatoes grown in exactly the same conditions had a big problem. Tomatoes that did remain healthy until ripe tasted like watery mush. I thought maybe it was a fluke, so I tried again the following year but got the same results. Very bummed! Not sure what went wrong with this one!

What are the pros? Flavor, disease resistance

What are the cons? Low yield first year

Review:

Seeds were sown January and planted out in a container in March in my central Florida garden. The winter of 2018 was very warm which means more pests and disease. The seeds had good germination and produced tall, healthy plants that's did not succumb to disease. I picked my first two billiard ball sized fruits June 1. The plants are still flowering. The array of color on this tomato is a real show stopper with stripes of purple, yellow, orange and black The flavor is superb! Very mellow with low acidity, juicy and mildly sweet. It is definitely a variety I will plant again! My only complaint is the low yield to date. I will continue planting these lucid gem tomatoes and highly recommend them!

What are the pros? beautiful, tasty

What are the cons? expensive seeds

Review:

This is a showy tomato in the garden and on the plate. We've grown it since 2017. In that first year, it did very well and was very prolific early in the season, Then excess rain caused problems, In 2018 we had a very bad year for tomatoes in this area (weird weather, too much rain) but Lucid Gem did better than most of my other tomatoes. It's in the garden this year as well and I have hopes it will do just as well as in previous years. This year, of all my tomato seedlings, these were the first to flower. Excellent germination. It has become my fave variegated tomato.
