BEAUTIFUL MARBLED SLICES
Reviewed By: Sylvester017 (Los Angeles County, CA)
There is quite a wait til one of these tomatoes gets large enough to harvest. Mine never got stripes on the outside but mostly was yellow. However, there was red marbling in the center of the yellow slices which made a pretty plate display! Good sturdy germinated seedlings. Just be patient cause it takes a while for large fruit to form.

Reviewed By: John Evenson (Holmen, WI)
First time growin the rainbow tomato. Impressed by the size and qualith of the fruit. Multiple tomatos of 2 lbs with no pruning or fertlizer. Dry well, freeze just as good. All thumbs up. P.S. Ialways despised tomatos, not now.

Big Rainbow - true to description
Reviewed By: Paul (Oak Hill, VA)
Planted these for the first time this year. They are incredibly sweet and large. No problems with the plant - it is late Sept and there are still fruit on the plants with plenty of time left to ripen
