    I'll say 14 days as I don't want to copy Nickdub.
    You are probably betting on the winning side there VC, I do tend to underestimate things like this - as it is the weather etc are unpredictable factors, so even if I knew how things go with this variety (which I don't) all you can ever do is give a rough estimate

    and sure enough the light green is spreading up from the bottom just as predicted. Nearly at the top.

    This BB is quite unusual in my experience, in that its members seem to know what they are talking about. Very refreshing.

    Default its a rollover....

    On 26 June, 27 days ago, IIRC veggiechicken called 14 days and nickdub 10 days to ripe on my tomatoes.

    Here is the first ripe one (it's an orange variety):
