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? hardy great taste great look

What are the cons? Slow

Review:

I'm having a great season with this tomato here in San Francisco. Abundant beautiful great tasting fruit and no difficulties. Black beauty has held up quite well despite the intermittently cold then blazing hot weather we've had this year. Leaves curled from heat and drought but the fruit has remained abundant and delishious. Top 10 in terms of flavor.

What are the pros? Very unique

What are the cons? Slow to mature and so so eats

Review:

Every last seed germinate and flourished. The vines were laden with fruit and a few actually toppled over. We were off to a great start but then I had issues with the stem ends getting brown and mucky. Almost like blossom end rot on the top! I also had issues with symptoms of nutrition problems although the tomatoes growing next to them were fine. Very slow to mature. If you are looking for a good eating easy to grow tomatoe I wouldn't recommend these as they seem bland to me. If you want to grow something interesting and remarkable then this is definitely a great one and everyone will be interested. Just don't count on it for harvest.

What are the pros? High yield, great color

What are the cons? Bland taste

Review:

I was curious about this tomato's hype and I grew a four-foot bush this year. I harvested a dozen tomatoes after a long battle with the hornworms, and many of the tomatoes had vivid blacks and crimsons. However, the raw flavor was rather bland like a flat diet soda. They made a decent pasta sauce and tomato salad. More of a nifty conservation piece than a great snack.

What are the pros? Set a lot of fruit

What are the cons? Hard to determine when ripe

Review:

Granted this was a very wet spring but even though the plants set lots of large and medium sized tomatoes it was difficult to tell when they were ripe enough to eat. I contacted Baker Creek who very nicely answered my email and informed me that the tomatoes should turn red on the bottom when they are ripe. This was not totally true. None showed any red until mid-August and most were late August. I tried them at various stages and found I could not be sure they were ripe until they they were really cracked and showing mold on the vining side. They were delicious and this was a tough year. Yes I will try them again.

What are the pros? Appearance, disease resistance

What are the cons? taste

Review:

I have to admit, that when these things get sun, the black is stunning. They have some of the richness that black tomatoes have, but there is little acid or sugar to liven things up. The texture is decent - not mealy. These take forever to ripen; even after they have changed color, they take at least three more days to remove the unripe, green flesh near the shoulders. I can say that the plants are fairly tolerant of wilt. Where the two plants next to this one have started desiccating and turning brown, the Black Beauty has held up with only one or two leaves showing any spots. They are interesting as seedlings since the stems are a nice red color and the young leaves are dark with purplish tones. In short, they look cool and might sell in a market, but there won't be many returning customers.
