This 6-10 ounce beefsteak is red with gold stripes and has very meaty flesh with luscious sweet red tomato flavor. Developed by Brad Gates and selected for flavor, production, increased earliness and scab resistance, he says the variety is one of his “work horses.”

What are the pros? Flavor, Production

What are the cons? Some have cracked slightly

Review:

This is the first year I have grown this tomato, and so far I've been impressed. The plants were quick to germinate and grew very well. They were the first of my tomatoes to ripen this year, about a week ahead of my others and still have plenty of fruit left on them. The tomatoes have been weighing in between 5 and 8 ounces. The flavor is good, low in acidity with a slight sweetness. This is a beautiful tomato that I will plant again.

What are the pros? A bit earlier than most

What are the cons? Way too small

Review:

I try a couple of new varieties each year, and Solar Flare caught my eye. The plants grew beautifully, they are loaded with tomatoes, and they are as pretty as the picture. However, none so far have been much over an ounce, quite a few less than an ounce. They are like large cherry tomatoes. I was expecting a beefsteak, sliceable size. They are tasty enough, good sharp tomato flavor. I will probably not grow them again, but it was worth a try.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, bountiful output

What are the cons? Small sized

Review:

I'd probably give this a higher rating, but I don't think I got the seeds for a Solar Flaire. I was expecting tomatoes that looked very similar to what is pictured. What I got was a golf ball sized tomato that was a dark maroon red with greenish gold stripes. It looks similar to a Tigerella in size, just a darker color. My hubby says they taste good though.

What are the pros? Plenty of fruit

What are the cons? Not all plants were the same

Review:

I planted 8 of these and all but 2 produced very small fruit. Two of the plants produced nice large fruit. Not sure why. The large fruits were beautiful and tasty, but the smaller ones tended to get soft,. Also the stem ends tended to have a pretty dee[ hard core that had to be cut out. Probably won't replant . Too many other tomatoes to explore!

What are the pros? Good producer, crack resistant

What are the cons? None

Review:

The solar flare has gained a permanent place in my garden! They're good fresh and can well. They seem to thrive in an overly sunny spot in my garden where others have failed. The vines can get quite large, though nothing like some others I've had.
