90 days. Winner of the 2005 "Heirloom Garden Show" best tasting tomato award. These have won taste awards coast to coast in the last few years, so we were proud to locate a small supply of seed. The fruit are smooth, large, and beautiful, being one of the darkest and prettiest of the purple types we have seen. They seem to have an extra dose of the complex flavor that makes dark tomatoes famous.

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Cracks

Review:

I love purple tomatoes, they seem to have a better flavor than other colors. I have tried a few other varieties and was resigned to the fact that they are, on the whole, poor producers of fantastic tomatoes. This tomato has proven me wrong. While germination was so low that I only got 1 plant, that plant is amazing! Not only is the plant huge and healthy but the tomatoes are the second largest after my aunt ruby! This plant set tomatoes more prolifically than any other and the flavor is just what I had hoped for. They are smooth and juicy, just perfect! They are, however, more prone to cracking than other varieties, but so worth it.

What are the pros? So Far Heavy Producer

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

I read a few reviews that said they were poor producers; didn't stop me from wanting to try a tomato that people raved about. So far I have about 10-12 tomatoes on the one. I am also growing the black brandywines and costolutos and the carbon so far is doing 2nd best besides the costoluto. We had a pretty cool rainy summer and is now finally getting hot and humid. It is quite tall; I have these growing in a 27 gallon tote, 1 plant per tote. Had some nasty blossom end rot but applied some calcium nitrate and epsom salt fertilizer, seems to be doing really well now. Can't wait to try them!!

Review:

This was the best tasting most impressive tomato out of about 18 other well loved tomatoes I grew in the summer of 2013. It had a very impressive tomato taste to it which to this day I have not founds it equal. I can only compare it to maybe a black cherry tomato. The only problem I had was that it produced maybe five fruit per plant then it stopped producing. I don't know if that is typical of this tomato or it could have to do with my garden at the time. My garden was pretty packed. I have alot of love for this tomato.
