Orange Jazz is a meaty sweet beefsteak that was bred by Fred Hempel at Artisan Seeds. Fruits can regularly reach 1.5 pounds. I have grown a few that were larger! Thick radiant vines are anxious to produce and show good disease resistance. They begin to ripen their fruits about 85 days after transplant. Fruits are sweeter and meaty with good balance. These are perfect for sandwiches and really good yellow sauce. Excellent choice for market sales too!

I had nothing but trouble with this variety. Granted I only grew one plant one season, so I can’t really give a fair assessment. However, the one I did grow failed miserably on all counts from the first fruits to the bitter end. From all the glowing reviews I read and all the lovely pictures I’d seen of this flawless, luscious-looking bright orange striped wonder, I expected to enter into some sort of tomato nirvana where the texture and flavor of this magical fruit would elevate me to a higher plane of existence. But alas, it was not to be. What I got was a large, unruly plant that loved to drop blossoms and produce a few random deformed orange blobs only vaguely resembling tomatoes that were plagued with blossom end rot, every one of them split and profusely leaking a tainted ambrosial elixir that was once destined to grace the lips of the gods residing upon Mount Olympus, but somehow poisoned by the evil goddess Achlys and destined to continue its downward journey from my raised beds into the depths of Hades, leaving nothing but woe and misery in its wake. I offered a sacrifice and performed the prescribed rituals and prayers to Demeter, the great goddess of agriculture and consort of the mighty Zuess in order that she might vanquish the evil Achlys and deliver my precious Orange Jazz tomatoes from the curse that was upon them, but to no avail. In the end, both me and my tomatoes had been vanquished but not totally defeated. I was able to salvage a small portion of one of the magical fruits, put it to my lips and taste the potential of things to come. I envisioned a season without unending cold early summer rains, without punishing heat waves, without blight or cold summer nights, and I saw a future with rich compost, ample fertilizer and flawless brilliant and bright Orange Jazz tomatoes shining like the sun, like a beacon of hope to the universe, to tomato growers everywhere, and all was right and good in the world.
