Black Plum Tomato

         
 
15 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

70 days--Indeterminate plants covered in dainty little plum-shaped fruits, 2 inches long by an inch 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.

Review:

Tomatoes are beautiful with a very complex flavor. They keep well for an heirloom. Amazing fresh or cooked. Plants are extremely prolific and have been producing since early July in a zone 4b garden. Prone to blossom end rot as plants are enormous and seem to need more calcium than other tomatoes, but they are otherwise incredibly easy to grow, just be sure that soil is amended with ample calcium and you will have no issues. This is now my favorite small tomato.

Review:

Fantastic tomato. My only issue was i used too small of cages and we have 3 wind storms this summer so my plants bent the cages. The plants grow aggressively up and out, so give them plenty of room. I lost alot of tomatoes to blossom rot, but that's because they bent the cages and fell over. However- the several hundred tomatoes I got off the plants were awesome (yes, several hundred!) I've canned 20 jars of them and I've given away over 100 of them. Great in pasta and raw in salads. Real popular with my friends and family now. I've had several people tell me they are their new favorite tomato. Plus, they look cool.

Review:

I eat these like raisins. Terribly addictive when dried. Wonderful complex flavor for a small tomato, the most beautiful brownish red coloring too. Gorgeous as a garnish and on platters. I finally started growing plants for the neighbors so they would stop eating my Black Plums and had their own lol

Review:

I have grown this tomato for a couple years now, and I keep growing it because it's easy to grow, it produces tons and tons of fruit, and the tomatoes are very tasty. It is always either the first or second of my tomatoes to begin bearing ripe fruit, and once it begins producing, you'll be plucking anywhere from a few to a dozen tomatoes off the plant per day. The vines keep growing -- my plant this year is over 7' as of Aug 20th, and it was shaded for much of the early season; can't imagine how tall it would get in full sun! My only complaint this year is that there has been a touch of fungus on some fruit, but since we have had an unusually wet summer this year, there's almost no plants in my (organic) garden that haven't been hit with either fungus or mildew, really. These tomatoes always draw many compliments for their appearance and taste. They make marvelous dried tomatoes, and are excellent in sauces. Highly recommend.

Review:

These tomatoes are just great all around. Some years the fruit is bigger than others, but there is always lots of fruit. The germination rate is always high and the plants are pretty hardy and while indeterminate, not super gangly. I sell them at my farmers markets, both in a cherry tomato mix and by themselves as a sauce or drying tomato. Great in the dehydrator, rolled in a little Olive Oil and Sea salt and dried make a great winter market item. I have been growing them for 8 years.
