Here is a lovely "Black" tomato that is loaded with flavor as well as production. This 2 oz. tomato, along with its other Vernissage cousins is sure to make a big splash in the garden as well as the kitchen. They are perfect for rich tasting sauces.

Vigorous yet...
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Vigorous, resilient plant

What are the cons? Mealy, pasty, little flavor

Review:

I received these (and the green variety) as free samples and figured, oh why not? On the plus side, theygerminated well and grew very quickly--by far the earliest and fastest developing tomatoes I've grown. They are handling insects fine and show little sign of disease, though they are well on their way to being 10 feet tall. As a result of their positive qualities, the end product is unusually disappointing. They are the mealiest, mushiness tomatoes I have ever grown. Even when not quite ripe they have an unpleasant texture. That distinct tomato flavor never appears--I've had commercially grown tomatoes with better flavor. I will probably consign the fruit to a sauce that has other ingredients to carry the weight--these certainly won't.

Such a disappointment
Easy to Grow 5.0

What are the pros? A beautiful plant

What are the cons? No flavor/texture

Review:

Like a lot of others, I got the seeds free in my Baker Creek order. I could not get over what beautiful tomato plants these were and they grew and bloomed quickly and formed bountiful crops of beautiful little tomatoes. Then I tasted them. Yuck, what a disappointment. The texture was horrible, just pure mush. Thinking I had left the fruit on the plant too long I tasted less ripe and finally a green one. Still mushy and very similar to mashed potatoes, not at all like a tomato. I had hoped for a bit of flavor so I could use these for sauce but they were completely bland. I've pulled up these fruit laden plants and composted them. Such a shame that such a beautiful plant could be so disappointing?

An amazing little tomato

What are the pros? Very productive

What are the cons? None at all

Review:

I received these seed free with an order. Being free I didn't expect much in the lines of taste but was I ever wrong. The plants are absolutely loaded with tomatoes and they taste awesome. They make a beautiful dark sauce as welll. They look good on the vine as well, the green ones look like miniature watermelons with their stripes then darken to a deep burgundy with dark green broken stripes. It's a shame you can't attach a picture to the reviews here,

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? None, so far

Review:

I planted several varieties of tomato this year and so far this is my most prolific of all. It seemed like every bloom has fruited. They are still green but they are about the size of a plum. There are no less than 5 fruits per cluster.

What are the pros? Sweet, gorgeous stripes.

What are the cons? None

Review:

Got this variety as a free pack. Decided to try it out, was my first tomato plant growing from seed! Germination was pretty much at 100%. Today picked first few and found them to be delicious! Skin is thicker than some varieties, flesh was meaty, taste was sweet with a tang at the end. I have few of them growing loaded with fruit! Will be planting them again next year!
