Best Tomato Ever

5 out of 5 stars Jul 23, 2018
I literally yelled out loud when I bit into this tomato for the first time. It's so flavorful, I can say it's the best one I've ever had. This year I grew 50 different varieties and I have never tasted one this yummy. It's wispy little leaves are different than normal tomatoes, and it's not as productive as some, but the taste is well worth it. Plant at least two. I will be planting this in the garden from now on!

Very sweet and tasty!

5 out of 5 stars Sep 10, 2019
I agree with the previous reviewer that these tomatoes are absolutely delicious. However, they do look a little like a smaller version of Mr. Stripey, which I planted a ton of (Mr. Stripey is great for tomato sauce). Although my Artisan tomatoes were all green (I planted several plants but they all ended up with the green tomatoes). I thought there was something wrong with these plants - that maybe it was really Mr. Stripey, but they got stressed or damaged by the sun as it has been hot this year... boy, was I wrong. When I took my first bite, I was so amazed at the flavor. I will definitely be planting these along with Mr. Stripey, the Black Krim, Sun Gold and the Cherokee tomatoes, but these might be my new favorite! Thank you Botanical Interests for having such amazing, organic and heirloom seeds!

These Did Not Like Humidity

3 out of 5 stars Dec 22, 2020
I grew these with a variety of other cherry tomatoes and these did terrible. As other reviews have said, the leaves were small and whispy which didn't bother me. The plant would make blossoms and then they would fall off, though all my other cherries did well. I think it is due to my heat and humidity in my area. I think I got three tomatoes from this type the whole summer which were beautiful and shiny.

My favorite snacker

5 out of 5 stars Aug 3, 2022
I grow 30 different varieties each year and these are my favorite snackers. I bought this variety pack after falling in love with the pink tiger. I was surprised by how sweet the green ones were. The leaves on these plants are thin and delicate so don't worry if you notice they seem small. The flavor and texture is amazing and every color will have a permanent spot in my garden. It's an extra bonus that they're so easy on the eyes.

Lovely, but yellow variety got some blossom end rot

4 out of 5 stars Dec 25, 2022
I really enjoyed these tomatoes. Most of the tomatoes were firm and juicy, and of course very beautiful and impressive to serve to guests. They take about 2 bites to eat, or one very big mouthful. I am in zone 8b in the Pacific Northwest, only fertilize with compost and a nitrogen feed, and only water when I see things start to wilt. In 2022 maybe 15% - 25% of these tomatoes seemed to suffer from blossom end rot so I had to throw those ones out. This problem could potentially be solved with different fertilizer or watering methods, or a different climate, so I can't really fault the seed variety. It's just something to note if you have suffered from blossom end rot in your garden tomatoes before, then you might want to stay away from this variety or at least know that you'll lose a small amount to it. As for myself, I will be sticking to "Artisan Bumble Bee Blend Pole Cherry Tomato Seeds" instead. This variety bears smaller tomatoes with nice color striping that didn't have a problem with blossom end rot. =)

Owner Response: Hi Carly, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed their tomato variety. It's a favorite of ours! Blossom end rot is caused by a lack of calcium., which may be due to low calcium levels in the soil but more often, there is plenty of calcium in the soil but its availability for uptake and transport of calcium is impaired. Make sure to water evenly and mulch the soil during dry period and periodically test your soil to ensure sufficient levels of calcium! Our horticulturist is always happy to chat about issues like this. Feel free to reach out!
