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.

Review:

Easy to grow and not picky! Taste is amazing and its a little juicy but not to much. Really a stunning tomato to hold and just observe the shine it has with the stripes! Only complaint i have is..blossom end rot...only had a few so far, just pulled off and tossed them to the woods.will grow again!

What are the pros? Appearance

What are the cons? Blossom end rot

Review:

This one is a very fun novelty! It's rare to find this striped pattern on any tomato, but especially a paste tomato. The fruits look just like the ones in the picture, and are truly breathtaking to look at. It's quite easy to grow; not especially resistant to disease, but not susceptible either. The plants look sort of weak, as is the case with most paste varieties, but don't be fooled by the droopy leaves; the plants are actually healthy! The one genuine problem, which is also shared by most paste tomatoes, is the prevalence of blossom end rot. Probably about 15-20% of tomatoes are affected; not a ton, but a large amount relative to most non-paste varieties. I mostly just have used it for cooking, so I don't have many comments about the flavor. But I absolutely recommend it!

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.
