Ratings & Reviews
Excellent picture-perfect tomato
We love this variety for serving/platters. Plants were not as tall as the Amish Paste we grew, but definitely worth every plant since it provided us beautiful shaped, tomatoes. True to its statement, blemish free. Definitely a keeper of seeds.
The Perfect Tomato
by Becky R
These have become my go-to tomato! They grow well, and are the perfect size and taste for all around eating. My favorite for caprese or BLTs, but meaty enough to throw in sauce, salsa, or other processed recipes.
This tomato is outstanding! Sweet, juicy, meaty tomato great for slicing and eating. Days from transplant to ripe tomatoes was about 80 days here in northern New England. Had no issues with blights or pests.
Not a producer
These never really took off. I was hoping they could be my main producer, but I barely got any and they were difficult to determine if they were ripe or spoiled (very squishy).
A perfect mid-sized beauty
by Jane from Ne
Eva Purple Ball produces perfect medium sized tomatoes. The skin has a delicate haze on top of its deep red color. The flavor is full and sweet. The plants are strong, but are not massive. Be careful, as the tomatoes will drop when perfectly ripe, so check your plants daily.
I plant it every year.
These tomatoes have excellent flavor. They are a pink, blemish free, medium size tomato that is a decent producer. Great for slicing or for fresh eating. It has a nice sweet, but balanced flavor. I plant these every year here in Western NY.
