This new Brad Gates selection is an absolute masterpiece! Slicing-type fruits are stunning, inside and out! This sister selection to Blue Beauty yields loads of 5-ounce, beefsteak-type fruits, 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 fruits are great keepers. You can’t go wrong with this one!

Review:

I always grow between 3-4 different types of tomatoes a year. This year I tried the Lucid Orange, I love it so much, I think I will pick this every year and the only tomato that I consistently grow is a Roma for canning purposes. The flavor is truly sweet and divine. Wow-wee!

What are the pros? Unique appearance

What are the cons? Odd flavor

Review:

I've had great luck with orange tomatoes, so I thought I'd try these. They do look just like the photo! Neighbor asked why it was black on top. Mine were in a new raised bed garden, so I don't know if soil affected this, but the flavor was a bit off- only a few of the ones I ate had the sweet home-grown flavor I was looking for. The yield was mediocre, compared to previous types of tomatoes I've grown in the past- not really a problem since I normally have too many. They really stick to the vine, many of them had an oblong shape that curls around the stem. More than once I pulled off a whole stem of ripe through green tomatoes. Leave them on longer and they crack and attract bugs. Between the lower yield and weird flavor, I think I'll try something else next year.

What are the pros? Taste, looks & heavy crop

What are the cons? None

Review:

Best crop of tomatoes I've had in years - even with late start, cool summer and not the best (sandy) spoil. Lots of perfect fruit, no blemishes of any kind, no splitting, even came back strong after caterpillars ate almost every leaf. And flavor - just wow!

What are the pros? resistance, flavor, production

What are the cons? none worth noting

Review:

This tomato was a real gem. Not only was it incredibly tolerant of the awful heat and humidity down here, but it had a wonderful, constant production and fruit set. Foliage isn't near as thick as some others, and plant stays a manageable size... very easy to care for and work with. All of this accounts for why these were the healthiest plants in my garden. This is by far the most unique tasting tomato ever. Upon eating a slice of this beauty, the first thing I said was "tastes jut like a fruit!". It is very unique with a wonderful texture- very juicy. Another reason I just love this tomato is it' shelf life! Ripe tomatoes can easily last 2 weeks on the counter. What a winner. Will grow this head-turningly beautiful tomato again and again!

What are the pros? Outstanding flavor

What are the cons? Curly leaf issues

Review:

This is one of the most unique-tasting tomatoes I've grown this year. The Gem stands out for its savory, curry-like flavor and makes a great tomato salad. My seedling grew well and yielded a dozen tomatoes. The only snag was that the bush had curly leaf problems. However, the bush still flourished and I can say that the Gem is a keeper for next year.
