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 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.

What are the pros? Grew easily

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

I grew 4 varieties of tomatoes this year and this was my best producer however it was my least favorite in taste. didn't have any problems growing it , and it produced all season long. this was my first season with an automatic watering system, and I did get some cracking on this variety that didn't get on the others. We were getting so many by the mid season this became our designated green tomato plant LOL. got several green tomato pies from this guy. Overall. was a beautiful tomato, that grew prolifically, and easily. If I was going to grow again, I would lower the amount of watering. I was watering every morning about 5am for 15 min. Although my other tomato plants seemed to love that amount of water maybe it was just a bit to much for these guys. o and our favorite of the four varieties were the Jersey devils so tasty!

What are the pros? Prolific, tasty, heat-tolerant

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

We grew these in the community garden this year. I started them later in the season from seed. The plants showed a beautiful splash of anthocyanin very early on. These were prolific once August came (I didn't get them into the ground until June 30.) Maryland humidity helps produce some of the best tomatoes.

What are the pros? It didn't die

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

I will admit that I grew these in a pot because I ran out of room in the garden. I treated it horribly and yet it still wouldn't die. I only got a handful of fruit off the plant and the taste was almost inedible. Was it rotten? I'm not sure. It didn't feel overly ripe. So, maybe not a tomato to grow in a pot.
