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? Sweet, Beautiful, Clusters

What are the cons? none

Review:

Lucid Gem is a special fruit that grows manageable. Right now I just train mine up a single leader. There are about 10 nice size tomatoes on it and I already picked a few. There is some Early Blight on it but we have had some steady wind rain here in South Florida lately. It seems to be able to resist the blight somewhat though. They grow in nice cluster. I do notice the stems that attach the clusters to the main stalk seem to be weak and they bend easy but I don't add any additional support and even though it seems 'kinked' they still grow fine. I will planting this in the future!

What are the pros? outstanding flavor, coloring

What are the cons? smaller plant

Review:

Just when I thought you couldn't get better then the Blue Beauty this one came along!! The flavor is rich and wonderful. Juicy fruit that turns an incredible variety of colors and is good at all stages! This tomato performed very well each year we have grown it despite some extreme weather conditions and extreme drought. It also had some pretty good pressure from thistles one year but still kept producing. The flavor on this tomato just can't be beat when grown here. The size is a perfect medium sized flat tomato and the plants, though a little bit smaller, produce really heavy. Very nice and compact here. Our customers at market really enjoyed the look of this stunning tomato.

What are the pros? Prolific, sweet, gorgeous

What are the cons? early BER

Review:

This was my favorite tomato this year, my first time growing it. As others have said, the first handful of fruits suffered from BER, but once the intense rain early in the season let up and the sun came out these took off and didn't look back. More sweet than acidic, more fruity than tomato-y in flavor. Strong skin peeled easily for processing, but could be on the tougher side for slicing. That said, it keeps and transports really well. Stunning looker, too. Overall way more pros than cons.

What are the pros? Beautiful, excellent taste

What are the cons? None

Review:

By far the best tasting tomato of 2018 in my garden, as voted by all family members and friends alike :). Prolific fruiter, very healthy plant, I agree it's quite a show-off too. I loved giving them away and the feedback was not surprising - unanimously approved by all as the king of the season. Looking forward to planting more of these next season.

What are the pros? Flavor, Strong Grower

What are the cons? Blossom End Rot

Review:

This tomato grew strong and tall from the beginning of the season. First fruits took longer to get past the Blossom End Rot stage. (Seems like the first few fruits every year with all larger varieties have this.) Prolific fruiter, which set a lot of fruit earlier than other varieties. They do seem to take a big longer to ripen. This was new to us this year and we'll grow it from now on. I am NOT a pick and eat raw tomato fan, and this is the only one I will eat raw with a wedge of mozzarella cheese. Definitely recommend this for the sweet flavor, and prolific fruiting. Northern Colorado, Zone 5A
