49 days you got to be JOKING.... Try 7 months
49 days???? hahahahaha First I am in Phoenix Arizona. It is known as one of the hardest places in the country to grow tomatoes. I got these because I thought I could start them in September and get tomatoes by Thanksgiving. Well I just picked my first really big batch and it is April 8th... hahahaha Yep. almost 7 months. I got a few ripe ones at the beginning of March, but just barely enough to make a Salsa. Now they are coming in red, in full force. Like I said, took 7 months.. Tomato tastes very acidic. Great Salsa Tomato... But was a bit too sharp for a pasta sauce... Maybe you need to let them really ripen on the vine to lower that acid, or boil them first.. But the problem is they ripen really really fast. And if you aren't careful they will get too sweet. Timing is key with this variety. And they are a bit too small to skin them.. Expect a lot of Cherry sized tomatoes all the way up to just a bit bigger than a golf ball. Was a bit disappointed how small they are. Was a bit smaller than early girl... Couple of things I noticed. If you want bigger tomatoes, trim all the leaves off after the tomato. But it is a lot of work for a tomato that will barely be bigger than a golf ball. haahahahaha Would make a great DRY FARMED tomato. Seemed to respond great to my lack of watering to speed up the ripening process.. And in conclusion. If you live in Phoenix still don't expect miracles with this variety. It really needs good tomato weather and soil to come in at 49 days.

These are earlier than the early girl variety by about two weeks. They are smaller, but very prolific with a sharp flavor.. I generally have three plants of this variety and pick enough to make about 4 to 5 quarts of juice a week almost all summer.

    My favorite
    Tomatoes are one of my favorite foods so when I garden for one I have certain criteria I would like to be met. For three consecutive years this tomato has performed exactly the same. Great flavor (probably not as good as an heirloom but that's because it's not an heirloom), earliest fruit production by far (even early girl), and massive quantities. So many are produced that I give them away (even though I want to eat them all and it's physically impossible). Now these are small tomatoes- like maybe the size of a lime, so all you have to do is cut smaller slices for your sandwiches :) I can not express how impressed I am with this seed.

      Early Treats are hard to beat
      Very fast producer , I put small plants approx one foot tall on May 18 and had red tomatoes on June 14th, I live in Massachusetts , so that was my quickest time ever, Usually I get a few tomatoes by the 4th of July, But the Early Treats broke my record by 3 weeks. Black plastic at the base of the plants and a little care and you'll be growing like a pro.. PS I would add sand into most garden soils to loosen the soil so the roots can spread easier!

        small, prolific fruits
        I grew these last year, and they were wonderful! Fed weekly with 1/2 strength M.G. tomato feed. (I worked my way up to 1T/2G water, per plant, weekly) Very prolific, fruits typically 2.5" diameter, good flavor. Came in early, and produced regularly all summer long. A mere 2 plants had oodles of fruit to share with others. Branches need support, to keep from breaking/rotting on the ground. Rope, tied to the cage worked last year, to help prop them up. Definitely would have broken the branches, from the weight of the fruit clusters. FYI, I don't prune, preferring 'au naturel' plants (and my girls seemed to appreciate it!). Pruning may alter results. Definitely growing these again this year! (this year I will be using a large cage, along with a frame to assist in supporting/tying the branches, to keep them off the ground)
