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? 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.

What are the pros? Beautiful when ripened

What are the cons? Takes awhile to ripen

Review:

I ordered these because they looked intriguing. The seedlings grew just fine like the other tomato plants I was growing. However, the tomatoes seemed to take forever to ripen. And we had a bunch of rain one night and a lot of my tomatoes split but it seemed like the Black Beauty ones split much more than the others. I also grow tomatoes for market and many of my customers felt these were too "weird" looking. If you were growing these for fun in your own garden, they might be kind of fun. But I would not recommend them if you're growing for market.

What are the pros? Flavor, beauty, sturdy plants

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are handsome, wonderful plants with handsome, wonderful tomatoes! The plants are very stocky and sturdy - I caged them, but they largely support themselves. The tomatoes are beautiful to look at and their flavor is deep, rich, and complex. They have done equally well for me sliced for burgers, chunked in salads, and made into sauce and ketchup. Mine have produced a range of sizes from medium to small, so they have filled a number of roles very nicely. Paired with a yellow and a red, they make a truly gorgeous mixed tomato salad.

What are the pros? Colorful; meaty; very sweet

What are the cons? crenelate fruit; diseased

Review:

The percent of seeding success was reduced for these tomatos, but the plants actually performed quite well and produced less than a dozen fruit before succumbing to a wilt disease. The medium-sized fruit was not smooth but crenelated and suffered discoloration from sun scald (its been a blister summer). The shape may not have been much but the taste was very sweet (low acid) and really looks good when mixed with other colors. Will plant other dark toms and avoid this one in future garden space.

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.
