80-90 days. Stunning and unique, this long, pointed, red fruit has wavy orange stripes! People were really excited about this one at our Heirloom Garden Show. It’s a specialty grower’s dream; just what chefs and today’s buyers are looking for. A perfect midsize beauty with brilliant color, meaty flesh, and excellent flavor. This variety was developed by John Swenson.

What are the pros? Beautiful

What are the cons? Weak

Review:

This is my second season growing this type. I had a rough run with it last year, blossom end rot. I tried again this season, new bed, proper calcium and a more attentive hand watering routine. Still showing end rot (none of my other varieties do). I think this type may just have a proclivity to end rot. Wish I could get a full crop to market, but for now its a personal garden choice for novelty. Any suggestions?

What are the pros? steady producer, popular

What are the cons? bacterial spot late in season

Review:

This is a regular workhorse tomato for me. Steady producer all season and into late fall. Striking and well received by customers, pretty in salads and good for sauce. Not as meaty as a full paste tomato, but good enough. Very little "goo" inside, so kids and non-tomato lovers like it. A little more citrusy tart than San Marzano or Amish paste. Will continue producing reliably even with poor soil, but taste and look will suffer. Keeps producing into October in Chicago but may eventually fall prey to bacterial spotting if soil nutrition and maintenance decline. Definitely worth trying for home use or market. Germination rates consistently high from both bought and saved seed.

What are the pros? were big

What are the cons? suseptible to blossom end rot

Review:

I grew these 2018 in the same bed alongside san marzanos, beauty king, porter, amish paste and Japanese black trifele. They produced the least at around 5 fruits and every single fruit had blossom end rot, none of the other varieties had that issue. As I am trying to cut down on my tomato seed collection these will not be making the cut.

Review:

My husband and I grew these in the Puget Sound area in a hoop garden before we moved to the Rogue Valley. They were amazing in our hoop garden and we wanted to see how they would do in the Southern Oregon heat. This was a first year garden site, as such the soil had not been amended much at all. We still ended up with a huge harvest. One of the first tomatoes that was ripe was nearly the size of a quart jar. The summer heat really set in shortly after that and we lost a lot to blossom end rot. The soil now has more calcium in it and we are ready with the foliar spray so we should not loose as many of them this year.

Review:

I purchased Striped Roman seeds from Baker Creek in 2012, and I have planted these every year since. Amazingly, we are still getting pretty good germination, even though the seed is over 5 years old! These are fairly large, very meaty, and have barely any seeds. I love to use them for tomato sauce and soup, but they are insanely good to eat fresh. This year, these were one of the first to start producing and we are still getting several tomatoes per week and it is mid-October. We usually get blight every year, yet these tomatoes will keep on producing for months. We will always grow these tomatoes!
