Stunning, perfectly shaped, deep purplish-brown fruit that are almost black. A great variety for both home gardeners and chefs. This tomato has the incredible rich taste that is in many of the large, dark beefsteak types: sweet, rich with earthy overtones. This variety has so much potential for introduction commercially and was among our best tasting varieties last season. Another variety we are introducing from the Ukraine along with its other jewel-toned icicle sisters.

What are the pros? rich color/flavor, not acidic

What are the cons? occasional mildly split fruits

Review:

These were our favorites in our Pacific NW garden in 2014 out of the varieties we tried out. We liked them so much they will be our main tomato for 2015 (plus a few cherries for fun). They made a gorgeous rich ruby sauce with an intense old fashioned fruity tomato flavor, without excessive acidity. My kids don't like acidic tomatoes but they LOVED these. They were great for fresh items like salsa and they did my Italian grandfather's famous marinara sauce recipe justice. He would have been so proud! The color of the cooked flesh isn't so unusual as to be odd for picky kids, but is a bit darker than your typical paste. The plants were hardy and prolific and easy to start from seed with high germination. The only thing I would change is that I'm going to need double the plants this year because we ran out early and we miss our Black Icicle tomatoes in the freezer. They were absolutely the best.

Review:

I had my doubts bc every other plant produced before this one. But it came on later and came on STRONG! Beautiful too. My favorite to cook with and can. Makes the best pizza sauce which is where most my crop goes to. It will climb and grow anywhere you lead it. Was wowed and delighted! My negatives aren't actually negative in the cons section....

Zone 7A - Grew these in New Jersey tomato country! What a great one to grow... tones of tomatoes, great taste to eat right off the vine and make a great addition to our homemade sauce. Will always have a place in our garden....

Review:

I grew these tomatoes in a hoop house in our cold climate. They were prolific growers and produced early, large fruit that we found delicious! I liked to slice them and add them to sandwiches. They produced a large volume of tomatoes and I will grow them again--they were our favorite find of the year.
