Japanese Black Trifele Tomato

80-90 days. Attractive tomatoes are the shape and size of a Bartlett pear with a beautiful purplish-brick color; the fruit are perfect and smooth with no cracks. The flavor is absolutely sublime, having all the richness of fine chocolate. This was our heaviest producer for 2004. The plants produced loads of fruit all summer long. It has become a favorite with many seed savers and we are glad to be able to offer such a colorful variety. It is believed to have come from Russia, so don't ask me about the name!

What are the pros? easy to grow; unique flavor

What are the cons? long season, long to ripen

Review:

We have grown this tomatoe three years, and it's a keeper. Such a hardy, pretty plant, in all kinds of seasonal weather, it even reseeds itself from one year to next. (Here in Indiana.) It took awhile to learn when it was ripe - and to *wait* for the fruit to ripen - but it's delicious, meaty, unique flavor, has deep red flesh. I found the skin on these tomatoes can be peeled easily without scalding. I only cultivate a few plants of black trifele in our small garden, so don't get enough of them to can lots of tomatoes. But, mixed with lots of onions & peppers, black trifele's make *the best* salsa.

What are the pros? Best tasting, heavy producer

What are the cons? None

Review:

I garden in heavy soil red clay. I add organic matter but it seems to disappear. These tomatoes don't seem to mind! When I head to the garden for a fresh tomato for supper, this is ALWAYS the one I pick! The top stays greenish, so I just cut the little "green hat" off. The plant stays smallish, great for a smaller garden. But it fits in with my 50 tomato plants I grow each year. Always a heavy producer. I will always grow this amazing tomato! I start my seeds in a hoop house my husband and son built for me for under $200.00. I get a head start on my plants. It doesn't take 80-90 days here in zone 7 with my hoop house. Truly love this tomato!!! A must try!!!

Review:

2013 was my first time to grow this tomato. It was easy to start and grew well in my climate zone 7B. It was not an early producer but once it did start it continued well into the fall until first frost. I ate many of these in salads. They are a nice 2.5" size that slices or quarters well. Looks good when cut and has a nice firm flesh with no air pockets inside. One of my favorites of the 12 varieties planted. Dehydrated slices taste keep and taste great too. Does have a subtle smokey flavor. Will be planting again in 2014 from saved seeds.

What are the pros? tasty, pretty, decent

What are the cons? nothing particular

Review:

These are a nice different tomato I offer to my customers. A small indeterminate plant, not that late and decent production. All purpose, no blossom end rot. Great taste with a silky texture.
