Black Plum Tomato

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:

We canned 35 quarts of tomatoes and tomato based sauces from 12 of these plants. They get tall - about 6 feet. The nice thing is that they don't all mature at once. You will be canning batches for a couple of months. We also froze about 6 gallon freezer bags of these. They are sweet and deeply flavored. 15 tomatoes in 8 quarts of vegetable soup created the most wonderful broth. Several people said that it was the best soup they ever had. I grew the 12 plants in 2 staggered rows in a 10' by 2.5 ft area. I used a Florida weave to stake them. The stems and branches are sturdy. Even though they were loaded with tomatoes, the didn't flop or break.

Review:

Growing conditions weren't great this year- cool and wet, late spring. These things not only grew but we've had a freeze and several frosts - it's Nov 8th and the majority of these are still green, and growing tomatoes. They grow in bunches like grape tomatoes, they're small 2 inches in length, but they're tasty and a little juicier than the average plum.

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.

What are the pros? flavor, easy to grow

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
