Black Beauty Tomato

World’s Darkest Tomato-- the darkest tomato we know of! A dark, meaty, very rich-fleshed tomato with extreme anthocyanin expression (same antioxidant in blueberries and blackberries). So dark that some tomatoes turn solid blue-black on the skin. Deep red flesh is among the best tasting of all tomatoes. Rich, smooth and savory with earthy tones. Hangs well on the vine and stores very well, and the flavor improves with room-temperature storage. Our own Dave Kaiser tasted it at the 2015 National Heirloom Exposition and proclaimed it as the BEST tomato he had ever eaten.

What are the pros? vigorous, healthy, productive

What are the cons? personal taste on flavor

Review:

Not very sweet or acidic, but it has a savory, almost salty undertone and buttery texture that keeps it from being boring. I honestly didn't love for it for fresh eating, but some of my family members liked it best. It makes an AMAZING, rich, umami sauce--GREAT for cooking. It was a puny seedling at first, but it later took off and matched my Big Beef F1 for vigor and production. No complaints there. It handled the heat OK and was disease resistant. It's early for the fruit size (early-mid season). Note: fruit only turns black where it gets direct sun, so prune and grow in strong sun if you want black fruit. The non-black parts will be deep brick red when the tomato is ripe. Black skin absorbs heat, and this tomato is thin-skinned, so there can be problems with radial cracking and with splitting after rain. Maybe not ideal for market growers, but not a big issue for home use. Contrary to the description, though, I did not find it to hang well on the vine or keep on the counter.

What are the pros? Interesting tomato

What are the cons? Difficult to grow

Review:

I grew 3 types of tomatoes this year. This one was the one I had the most issues with. I'd say about 1 in 5 of these tomatoes came out normal; most of them would either get really bad blossom rot (I think this is from a lack of calcium, but found it odd that my other tomato varieties didn't have this issue). Others would just turn black on the top, and a lot of times they would stay green on the bottom and rot entirely on the vine before they ever matured enough to eat. When I could get one that was decent they WERE one of the better tasting tomatoes I have had. I just wish I had gotten more edible ones. I think if I tried these again I would grow them in calcium enriched soil. They are also late bloomers compared to other tomatoes I have grown and although I started them inside in mid February and put outside in mid April, they didn't have fruit until late July.

What are the pros? Hardy productive variety

What are the cons? Late ripening

Review:

Excellent germination, plant hardiness and production. This is a very sturdy plant with superior yield of varied sized tomatoes. Most of mine are around 10-14 ounce size. Very pretty dried with excellent taste. The only drawback is that they are slow to ripen. It is an attention getter in the garden. We will grow this variety yearly. Well worth the initial cost for the seeds.

What are the pros? Very different

What are the cons? hard to tell when ripe

Review:

I loved this tomato. At first I thought that mostly black and a little green was ripe, realized that the black matures to red, not green. Variety was exceptionally easy to grow and has produced a ton of tomatoes for me. I found that the tomatoes range from small to large. I am sure this will depend on how many tomatoes are allowed to grow on each branch. The flavor is great, not acidic and very sweet when it is allowed to ripen fully on the vine.
