This little striped jewel is loaded with sublime sweetness & taste. A perfect addition to salads, salsas and even desserts! The small fruit have lovely light green flesh. Plants are quite productive over a long season. A new favorite at our farm.

What are the pros? taste, color

What are the cons? none

Review:

great germination and plants grew very well, over 6 ft tall. Excellent production of golf ball size fruit. Good taste. Requires a closer inspection to see if they're ripe. They take on a very slightly yellowish hue and feel squishier when ready to pick.

Review:

So, with one of our orders in winter, we received a packet of black vernissage as a free gift. We planted several and we have been picking tomatoes now for at least a month. Yesterday I was out picking and noticed a couple green tomatoes that had cracked. Hmmmm, some of our red ones are cracking due to the recent rain, but I wasn't expecting any green ones like that. I touched it and it almost squished in my hand. I started noticing lots more! For weeks now, we've overlooked that particular plant assuming it was slow to ripen, our eyes set on finding the red ripe tomatoes. Compared to the black vernissage, the green vernissage is mushier and less flavorful. It's a beauty though. Sadly, we had to compost most of what we picked because they were too far ripened to eat. I used the ones I could in a salsa and they work great for that, although they can be difficult to slice if too ripe because they squished down and the insides came out. A novelty tomato in my opinion, but nice to grow

What are the pros? High yield

What are the cons? Too mushy, bland flavor

Review:

I have to admit, sadly, that this is my least favorite tomato this year (out of 12 heirloom varieties). The texture of the fruits is just not appealing to me at all. There is a very substantial amount of the gooey center tissue that holds the seeds, which takes up a disproportionate fruit volume, resulting in a rather mushy/jelly-like texture. The flesh itself (typically the good part) also seems to nearly disintegrate immediately upon ripening, so they are unpleasant to eat just a few days after picking. The flavor is also one of the most bland ones I've grown. The one good thing I can say is the skins are very thin so there is no need to peel them if you are going to cook them - which is pretty much the only way I found they were good (as tomato chutney). If you want a better cherry-sized tomato, try black cherry (http://www.rareseeds.com/black-cherry-tomato). And a MUCH tastier, more robust/fleshy green striped tomato is the Green Zebra!! http://www.rareseeds.com/green-zebra-tomato)
