80-90 days. Stunning and unique, these long, pointed, red fruits have 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:

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!

What are the pros? The size and quality of tomato

What are the cons? Aphids like it

Review:

I have grown this tomato in my garden the last couple of years and like it very much. Last year was a terrible year for tomatoes here and it produced some despite the weather. I like that it is easy to see when it is ripe, the stripes are completely yellow it is ready to pick.It seems more resistant to some diseases than other. It is a nice tomato to can and has a nice flavor. Will grow again.

Review:

This is my new favourite tomato. I grew 15 different varieties this year and this one is my favourite as they grow very large, so you need less tomatoes for salsa, and are a multi purpose tomato. They make a great tomato for a salad and are beautiful.
