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? many flavors, easy, early prod

What are the cons? uneven ripening, long mature

Review:

Easily the best tasting tomato I have ever eaten, in one bite there are many different complex flavors. Looks incredible aesthetically as well. It was the first to produce fruit, even before my supersweet 100s. It did take a long time for the fruit to fully ripen and mature, but it was well worth the wait.

Review:

It has been a delight to grow and sell this tomato. It was the first to set fruit in my high tunnel and field and stays loaded with fruit. I counted over 20 good size tomatoes on several plants. The plants are healthy, not too bushy although I do prune a good bit. They must have good support due to so much fruit. The intriguing color draws customers to my market table. I taste tested this tomato against the Carbon, Cherokee Purple, Brandywine Pink and Pink Berkley Tie Die. The Black Beauty won hands down in my taste test beating the Cherokee Purple!!! The flavor is full with a balance of sweet and acidic. The skin is a little thicker but I've had no complaints. Customers are coming back for more each week! It is the first variety to sell out so far. The fruit is medium sized, well shaped but there have been some misshaped fruit with normal heirloom qualities. I will double my production of the tomato next season.

Review:

This is my first time growing these tomatoes and I am hooked. They grow super well, produce a LOT of fruits and the tomatoes are super cool looking. I just picked and tried my first one this morning and both my husband and I raved about how delicious it was. I'm so glad I have multiple plants growing because I'm going to want to eat these every day. I will definitely make these a staple in my future gardens.

What are the pros? Grows well, resilient

What are the cons? A little slow to mature

Review:

I really liked this tomato. I tried a number of new varieties this year, and the Black Beauty was the heartiest seedling/start of the bunch. When other seedlings had their first set of leaves, I had to transplant these. The seedlings were resilient in the face of puppies, clumsy toddlers, and squirrels. After planting they had many trials and tribulations, but still managed to set a large number of fruit. Tomatoes were tasty with good flavor, and beautiful in a salad or sandwich. I ate an embarrassing number of tomato and mayo sandwiches. Next year they will get their own bed with extra protection to see if I can coax out their full potential. The Phoenix heat is setting in now, so I'm interested to see if they survive until fall. A fall/winter crop would be the ultimate test for these lovelies!

this tomato grows in clusters,pollinates well. I pruned for two vines and the blossoms are probably in the hundreds and the sets are in the dozens already.
