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? Gorgeous, delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

This tomato was my favorite from our garden this year, and I grew just about every type of heirloom tomato I could find seeds for. It took it's time to mature, but when they were ready, they were both tasty and beautiful. They were pretty easy to grow too. I got about fifteen tomatoes per plant, which was more than I could eat, so I took them into my office and everyone thought they were great. We had a shorter season than normal, so at the end of summer I covered them with plastic, and didn't get any splitting from the early rain we got. Made some sauce since I had so many, and the sauce was a nice dark crimson color. I'll be growing these again this year.

I've grown many black tomatoes & these are my favourite. So tasty! Produced well & earlier than many of the other large tomato varieties. I sold this at the Farmer's Market and always had people coming back for more.

What are the pros? Great looking, OK taste

What are the cons? Not too prolific

Review:

I was excited about this tomato and I am not even sure if I will grow it again. There are other black tomatoes doing extremely well in my garden (Carbon, Black Brandywine, Sarah Black....) but this one was lazy producer and I was not impressed by taste either.

What are the pros? Beauty of the tomato

What are the cons? Problems ripening

Review:

This was an extremely beautiful and prolific tomato which had great vigor. The tomatoes were always a point of interest in the garden. The bottom is your only indicator of ripeness. It turns from green to red. However, the tomato stays rock hard unless you bring it in the house to ripen. If left on the vine to ripen one portion of the tomato will rot before the rest ripens. The size of the fruit varies enormously, from 1 pounders to 2 ounces.

Not what I anticipated
Easy to Grow 2.0
EarlyMaturity 1.5
 

What are the pros? Increased antioxidants

What are the cons? Low producing

Review:

I was excited about this Black Tomato, but I doubt I will buy the seeds again. Each year I plant Black Cherry tomatoes, my favorite Krim, and one new to me. All tomatoes have done very well besides the Black Tomatoes. They were slow to grow, then slow to produce. I perhaps had 5 tomatoes from the plants all season. Very disappointing. They were handled and planted as the other tomato plants were, which did great.
