50 days. Determinate. One of the very earliest tomatoes, the compact plants produce lots of 2-oz red fruit. One of the best for cool conditions and will set fruit in lower temperatures than most. It has even been grown in the Southern Yukon. Developed by Dr. Harris, Beaverlodge Research Station, Alberta, Canada.

Review:

I tried this in Big Timber Montana, above the 45th parallel. Planted 3 plants from 5 starts. From seed to first "green" tomato was around 50 days. In no way, where I am, would you go from seed to red ripe tomatoes in 50 days. Plants grew strong and hearty, had plenty of fruit. These were seeded on May 14, by June 24 most plants were 10 inches tall no fruit or flowers at 42 days. By July 20 plants were 18 to 24 inches tall, thick stems, green foliage, had several flowers and some small green tomatoes so at 68 days from seeding I had small 1.5 inch green tomatoes. I did not get red tomatoes until mid August and very few ever ripened. My average day time temperatures were in the mid 80's in July and some lower 90's in August. The overnight temperatures were in the low to mid 50's. By 3rd week in August I had some red tomatoes, however the meat was "pithy". By September I had 7lbs or so green left, took around 90 days from seeding to harvest for red tomatoes. May try again, not sure.

What are the pros? Decent taste

What are the cons? Not early

Review:

This is a decent cherry tomato, but it's not really that early. My Cherokee Purples and Kellogg tomatoes started producing ripe fruit just a few days after this did.

What are the pros? Lots of tomatoes

What are the cons? Not early at all

Review:

Seeded on February 24th, had 9 of 12 seeds germinate. We transplanted on May 13th. It's a 50 day variety so we were expecting our first ones in early/mid July. It's July 27th now and while there are loads of green tomatoes on them, we are finally just getting a slight blush of color on one tomato! While waiting for these we've already had 2 of our 75 day varieties ripen, as well as an 80 day variety (Chadwick Cherry). I don't think we'll bother with this one again. The plants are quite healthy and productive, but if it's going to be late-season tomato, there are other types I'd rather buy.

Perfect early tomato

What are the pros? Taste, Hardy, productive

What are the cons? Nothing bad to say about these

Review:

Best of the many early toms I've tried over many decades of gardening. They taste best, are highly productive, and start producing a full 2 months earlier than my earliest main crop...and continue til the main crop toms come in. They look like heck when the weather gets hot, yet continue to produce some toms til late August/Sept.

What are the pros? Largest tomato for our area

What are the cons? lower production

Review:

We live on a west facing mountain slope, in a cooler part of Northern California. Because of our location, we cannot grown anything bigger than cherry or grape tomatoes. Even plum and icicles are a bit touchy. This year I was given some subarctic plenty plants. They have produced the largest tomatoes we have ever had up here! Taste and texture are great. Habit is small. Each plant produces slightly less than I would like, but really, who cares? We are able to grow slicers for the first time ever! Highly recommend this to anyone with very short days.
