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 fruits, 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!

What are the cons? low, low yield,

Review:

Favorite tomato last year. Each fruit is something to admire and swoon over. This production is sparse though. I got 7 tomatoes per plant. Yeah. Fortunately, the plants themselves don't get very big, so try to plant them closer together than you normally would. I let all my gem plants bush out, but they hardly bush. Might be worth white to prune all suckers and allow all resources to fuel the main stem instead. Fruit is ripe when squishy.

What are the pros? Wonderful flavor

What are the cons? Not prolific for me

Review:

The few tomatoes I got from these were amazing. I start the seed indoors in peat pots and then plant when the seedlings are about 6-8 inches tall. I used organic soil in raised beds and Tomatotone food. It's hot here from April thru November or beyond, so that may have affected the amount of fruit produced. I'm planting them again this year. These are worth a try. They really are quite extraordinary.

Review:

I just loved these. I wound up with four plants and they were excellent producers, no disease, and bore for a very long time. Fruits were on large clusters of 3-6 tomatoes each. They were a lovely color when ripe, and made the most beautiful slicers. In an heirloom salad with other tomatoes, so colorful, and made a gorgeous salsa. I loved the flavor. The "gem" in the center didn't show up very large on all of the fruits, but the larger the fruit, the more obvious the gem was. Growing them again this year for sure.

What are the pros? Beautiful and very tasty.

What are the cons? Identifying ripe tomatoes

Review:

I always grow 3-4 different kinds of tomatoes. My daughter-in-law picked several Lucid Gems when they were still green because it is difficult to tell what color my tomatoes are supposed to be because I've planted so many different kinds. I just love these for so many reasons. They were beautiful, they tasted better than ALL of the tomatoes I've grown. Instead of getting a bunch of different tomatoes for 2018, I will be growing only these and a cherry tomato this year.
