Customer Reviews

4.25 in. Grande Proven Selections Paul Robeson Heirloom Tomato, Live Plant, Vegetable (Pack of 4) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice plants, great way to jump start your garden DISCLOSURE: I received Proven Winners Direct Paul Robeson Tomato 4.25” (4 pack) free from Home Depot’s “Seeds” program. Home Depot only asked that I provide an honest review. I was not compensated in any way. The four, 15” tall plants arrived via UPS in a sturdy cardboard box with their 4.25” pots securely located inside. Each pot was covered by a plastic bag with a drawstring, presumably to keep the soil moist but the packaging dry. Unfortunately the soil was dry and the plants were rather wilted. We feared they wouldn’t survive, but they perked up pretty well within a day of being watered. Only a few leaves had to be removed. WHAT’S GOOD: Delivery right to your door Good packaging A decent value at $30! WHAT’S NOT: Arrived a bit dry, but perked up Also there was a minor snafu in shipping - I ordered these along with four other plants from Proven Winners. The first arrived on its own, despite the packing slip claiming all five plants were in the shipment. I received the Paul Robesons and two other plants after calling customer service. Still waiting on the fifth and final plant. There are only minimal instructions on the small plastic garden tag in each pot, which might not be a problem for experienced gardeners, but seems lacking. Check Home Depot’s website for better information SUMMARY: As long as you can be flexible with delivery, and don’t mind following up on the shipment, the product is very good, and a great way to jump start your garden!

I am looking forward to these plants producing some good tomatoes as I have never had this variety before. I always like to try new tomato plants to see how they taste and live up to the weather climate of New England. Now, the only reason I am not rating this 5 stars is because of the shipping. The plants came in a box that should have kept them separated and protected. However, it looks like two were placed on top of another two for some reason. There were a lot broken and crushed leaves and stems due to this. With that being said, once I cleaned them up, planted them into my raised garden bed and gave them a few day to acclimate and are now doing great.

These plants are growing great, they are already about a 12-18 inches tall. All four plants arrived health and growing strong. Some of the leaves where starting to curl, a bit of water and the sun, in less then12 hours they perked right up and are now doing great. They were all nicely packed in one large outer box and an inner box. There are already several flower and buds coming out and one plant already has a tomato growing. This weekend I will be transplanting them as they have now outgrown the containers they came in. In the future I will be ordering more plants on line, this was a great experience.

I look forward to trying this unusual attractive tomato which is described by many as having a smokey sweet taste to it. The plants arrived in a very healthy state, one of which already had a bloom on it. They were packaged very well for shipping, with each being wrapped in paper to protect GMO free so you know you are starting out with healthy tomatoes. It requires a cage due to the structure and is disease resistant and cold tolerant. Mature height is 84 inches .Days to harvest 68. Fruit weight is approx. 8-12 ounces. I have had mine for several weeks now and all are thriving in containers. For gardens, patios, raised beds. I love the earthy smell of tomato plants as well.

I was wary of having live tomato plants shipped directly to me because plants are so fragile and I have had so many other items arrive damaged from shipping. I was pleasantly surprised to find these 4 beautiful tomato plants arrived at my doorstep well-packed and protected and in pristine health. I planted two of the plants in my wife's flower garden, with her permission. The other two went where a couple of my blueberry bushes died. I used garden soil, mulch, and tomato cages on all of them and after one week in the ground they are thriving. I can't wait to see and eat these Paul Robeson tomatoes I have read about. Also, being an heirloom plant means that I can harvest seeds from these tomatoes for next year's garden. Two green thumbs up!

All plants were carefully packed in special cardboard box and brown paper. They arrived in a good shape, not dried out or very wilted. The seedlings were several different sizes and the smallest one did not make it. It was pretty fragile and I finished it off during planting. The other three are doing well two weeks after being planted in a raised bed, during absurdly rainy weather in Maryland. Since it will not be another two months before I have fruit, I read up on description and testimonials. Paul Robeson heirloom tomato smoky-sweet flavor unique brick-black fruit color disease resistant and cold tolerant prefers full sun (6 plus hours) and well-drained soils planting 2-3 feet apart with 3-4 feet between rows grows to be 6-8 ft. in tall, needs to be caged fruit weight is approximately 8-12 oz., beefsteak style 85 days to maturity hardiness zones: 5-9 plants are 5-10 in. in tall when they are shipped in 4.25 in. grande containers can grow in gardens, raised beds, and on patios Overall, two of the four seedlings are thriving and fairly robust, one died and one is still trying to catch up. I would check on plant guarantee and pay especially careful attention to planting the fragile seedlings and the weather. Some guidance on planting would have been helpful as well. The tomato promises to have a unique flavor described as smokey and sweet that has many fans.

They arrived in excellent condition--although the soil was fairly dry, the plants were perky and green, no wilting. They were packaged well, no broken stems. I wasn't able to immediately plant them so I left them in my sink and kept them watered in the containers they arrived in. I have since transferred them to large pots outside and they are doing great. After a couple weeks they are significantly taller and wider and have flowers. I look forward to tomatoes soon!

These "GRANDE PROVEN SELECTIONS PAUL ROBESON HEIRLOOM TOMATO, LIVE PLANT, VEGETABLE" are great so far. I got them in and actually did not have time to plant them till 2-weeks ago and they are still full, green and growing. I planted them as instructed and my experience and so far they are growing nicely. I do not see any flowers yet but the weather in MA has not been the best so far for vegetables but looking forward to the crop. Not much more to say since the rest is up to my care and mother nature.
