Black Plum Tomato

70 days. Indeterminate plants covered in dainty little plum-shaped fruits, 2” long by 1” wide. Mahogany-skinned berries show some green-shoulders, and have the complex flavor gardeners expect in a black/purple type. Makes a wonderful salsa or spaghetti sauce, yet juicy enough for fresh use.

What are the pros? Great flavor, good production

What are the cons? Ocassional blosson end rot

Review:

I have grown these for four years and I they are a must have, I just wish I had more space so I could grow more of them. Seedlings do well, transplants easily, caged they deliver perfectly and without issue. They ripen a bit earlier than most plum, medium, or larger sized tomatoes. The flavor is rich, complex, and smokey. They make wonderful salsas, soups, pasta sauces, and are amazing when roasted and put on pizzas. I can some, assuming anything is left. One of the pasta sauces we reserve this for is made with spicy Italian sausage, Merlot, and spicy arugula. It pairs so well in this sauce that I actually grow it specifically with this sauce in mind. Right now, I only have room for 8 plants, but if I could expand to 30-40 plants (as a friend has), these would all get used up.

Nice tomato with typical black tomato taste. Out of the 30 or so varieties I grew this year, only these and the "black" tomato variety exhibited blossom end rot.

What are the pros? easy growing, prolific

What are the cons? none

Review:

I got these from a friend and didn't try for two years. When I did, I was pleasantly surprised. They are very prolific, tolerant of neglect (I don't water regularly), and produced lots of wonderful earthy tasting fruits. I was able to dry many of them and they are delicious dried or fresh as a snack! My neighbors loved them also as they have a complex earthy taste, which is why I love the black/purple tomatoes. I've continued to grow these 3 years in a row, and they do not disappoint.

Review:

I grew these in 2015. We had a very dry season, and I had no water source, so I hardly ever watered the plants. The plants themselves were not very big, but flowered well, and established many fruits, ca. 1 inch long, for all summer and autumn, until the first frost in late October. Despite of lack of water, the fruits did not crack. A very few of the fruits suffered from the blossom end rot. Due to conditions, we had no potato blight in 2015, which usually destroys all the plantations, so I cannot tell if this variety is very susceptible. I loved the sweet, earthy taste of the fruits, they looked great in salads, and stored well. I saved some seeds and definitely will grow them this year.

What are the pros? Heat-tolerant

What are the cons? I have mixed feelings.

Review:

I grew these in 2015. The plants took a while to flower compared with most of my tomatoes, but when they did, they didn't take a long time to set fruit and ripen. These are very heat-tolerant. Most of the tomatoes I grew in 2015 were not heat-tolerant. Production on these was decent (I wouldn't call them prolific in the conditions they had, but I've read they can be prolific). The fruits were small. I've read great things about the flavor from lots of reviews, but mine tasted good and like they could taste better. The September and early October ones tasted better, I thought, than the earlier ones that set in the heat. I imagine if I grew out my saved seed again next year, they may taste better, due to being somewhat better-adapted to the conditions here. This variety seems to have above average shade-tolerance, as well as tolerance for crowded conditions (so it might work well in containers). The fruits tasted about the same in a more shaded area as they did in a less shaded area.
