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? 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

What are the pros? Beautiful tomato

What are the cons? extremely slow to develop

Review:

We trialed this tomato on our farm this year. We planted all tomatoes on April 1 and didn't pick any meaningful amount of Lucid Gems until the end of August, about the time when we were up to our eyeballs in every other variety we planted (13). The Lucid Gem was a very wimpy plant for several months, almost to the point where I was wanting to tear them out, but they finally got their act together by August and are now extremely prolific. The flavor of this tomato is really great and was declared the best tasting tomato at a tasting we did at our farmstand...but they can be a little hit and miss. The flavor isn't as dependable as other varieties we grow, but when they are good they are really good. Very low acid, long shelf life, very prolific, and really beautiful. We will probably grow them again but in limited quantities. We can't wait for a tomato that takes almost 5 months to ripen, but this tomato is special enough that we'll probably plant them again.

What are the pros? Look good, low acid, prolific

What are the cons? Bland flavor, subject to BER

Review:

This was a beautiful and prolific tomato, loved the heat, though did start out with some BER due to an extremely wet and stormy start to the summer up here. They were earlier than I expected, also. I dosed them with calcium and the rains let up and the BER stopped quickly. They're my favorite tomato to give away, both because they're beautiful to show off and because they ended up producing so many fruit. Taste-wise, I found them on the bland side...lower in acid, which is good, but also lacking a strong "tomato" flavor.

Review:

This is a great tasting tomato and is a lovely marbled color. My plants produces great but I had a problem with stink bugs eating into them and the black beauty ones they caused a lot of damage to my crop, but the ones I got were great

What are the pros? Taste!! BEAUTIFUL

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.
