What are the pros? heavy yield, early ripening

What are the cons? needs too much room to grow.

Review:

I received these tomato as a free sample gift with some other seeds that I purchased this year (2015). I typically grow a lot of tomatoes so I figured what the heck, it couldn’t hurt to add these to the garden this year as well. I tried something a little new this year (2015) and planted my tomatoes from seed directly in the ground rather than starting them indoors like I usually do. This technique has worked extremely well and my plants all seem much stronger and more vigorous then previous years. I live in central Texas and sowed in the second week of March. It’s now the middle of June and and I harvested my first tomatoes from these plants this week. The Black Vernissage has been the most impressive of the eight tomato varieties that I planted this year. These plants are extremely fast growing and extremely, extremely huge; they need a lot and I mean a lot of room to grow. These plants are also very, very prolific producers of small (2 oz. or so) purple and green striped tom

What are the pros? they grow fast

What are the cons? they take forever to ripen

Review:

this is my first time growing them, and they are fun to grow as they grow fast. but they take for ever to ripen, 1 here...2 more there. I have 8 plants of them, and i do eat them right off the vine and do not find them mealy or grainy...pithy is probably the word you are looking for but i do not find them that way. i'm curious how one would make a "sauce" with them seeing as how they are so small, and slow ripening. but then again..I don't grow mine in all a that fancy dirt and stuff, i grow them in good organic soil with my 2 secret ingredients that "foodie's" would scoff at so i'll keep them in my world haha.

What are the pros? color

What are the cons? texture

Review:

VERY VERY mealy, almost gritty and not very 'tomato-like- flavor. Worst tomato I have planted in 5 years. Looks nice though!

Black Vernissage lacks flavor

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Mealy texture and lacks flavor

Review:

We grew these organically in Sumner, WA in loamy soil. The size and rate of growth was fantastic. Unfortunately the flavor and texture completely missed the mark, especially if you're looking to eat them fresh off the vine. The texture was very mealy and the flavor was quite lacking. I did not try to cook them because the flavor off the vine did not even entice me to try cooking or canning them.

What are the pros? Unique and savory

What are the cons? Not made for fresh

Review:

Prolific fruits make for a sauce that's amazing, and unexpected. Any hardcore foody would be a fool to not sauce up this gem. Don't be a fool! If you're looking for a tomato you can cut off the vine in the garden to enjoy, this ain't it, so move along... But if you are talented in the way of the sauce, do yourself a great favor and enjoy what "Black V" has to offer.
