Black Plum Tomato

         
 
12 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:

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.

Review:

This was my first year growing these -- I found it to be a hearty and easy tomato to grow, and it's my new favorite. Just larger than a grape tomato, these beautiful little tomatoes have a complex flavor profile. In addition to being a great snacking tomato all on their own, they are phenomenal in salsa or in salads.

What are the pros? Smoky/Spicy depth

Review:

Every year I grow about 15 varieties (mostly black/dark kinds because I am a lover of deep, earthy, smoky flavors). This plant is the most prolific and outstanding performer I've ever witnessed. Last summer (2012), ONE plant put out over 200 tomatoes (yes, we counted every single one). Contrary to a previous reviewer's suggestion, please let this tomato OVER RIPEN on the vine. You do not want to pick it until it's soft and almost brown in color. Only then can you experience how smoky/deep this tomato is. It makes the most outstanding blended sauces ever. Just throw them in a blender with fresh tarragon, red wine, shallots, cream, and some other personal favorite ingredients - voila. You will be astounded. Any one I present this sauce to begs to know how I got it so smoky. I say "it's all in the tomato". I also don't want to forget to mention these do great at high altitude.

Review:

In Hawai'i sometimes the hardest things for growing non-Native/Endemic plants is that this is paradise. When I first bought tomato heirlooms from here the germination rate was abominable! This black plum was a complete shot in the dark and WOW! I have to say so far it's been 100% germination and these suckers are fighters. Pair them with the Soldier Bush Bean (another 100% germinator) from rareseeds.com and you've got beautiful synergy. Mahalo Nui Loa from Hawai'i!
