We are introducing this large variety received from Bulgaria. A stunning purple-black tomato that was the best-tasting tomato we grew last season and is sure to become a new favorite. Rich dark flesh is full of the rich, smoky, organic taste that makes dark varieties among our favorite. Though named for the Vorlons, a fictional alien race, this tomato won't stay an alien long.

My favorite indeterminate tomato. Homesteads being the former. These outperform in size, taste, production, disease and insect resistance.

Review:

Vorlon may actually be an American tomato in origin, an accidental stabilized cross of Pruden's Purple and Cherokee Purple discovered in a Maine garden around 1998. In my zone 6a garden this plant has done very well. A very healthy plant now at 5 feet and still growing and producing new fruit. It was setting fruit four weeks after transplant. Currently there are 25 fruits on the plant, two of them are very large and I suspect that once ripened they may top out just over a pound. Most are looking like they are around 8-12 oz range. I just ate the first ripe one and oh my! So far one the best tasting of the 37 varieties I'm growing out this summer. The flavor is so rich, sweet, with complex overtones. Absolutely delicious! So far Vorlon tastes better than this year's Cherokee Purple and Paul Robeson and last year's Carbon and Black from Tula. Placed on next year's grow out list.

This is the best tomato I have ever had. Firm yet incredibly juicy and tasty, not many seeds, easy to grow, prolific under a blazing sun, cannot say enough good things.

What are the pros? Large, meaty, prolific

What are the cons? Needs lots of space/support

Review:

This has been the best tomato I have grown in this region. They have been robust to wet, dry, high humidity, and blistering sun. They have also not fallen prey to disease next to other tomatoes that did. As a bonus, the fruit has been resistant to cracking in conditions where I would have expected lots of cracking. I love the fruit! They are large, fist sized black tomatoes with dark green shoulders. Unlike many black tomatoes that I have tried, the green shoulders and only skin deep, and the flesh under the green is still juicy. The fruit is really sweet, but has the acid tang that you want from a black tomato. It is also a very meaty tomato, very firm. I love garden tomatoes. I usually end up hording mine, but the Vorlon has been prolific enough that I have been sharing the fruit around with family friends and neighbors. I will definitely be planting this again next year! I will be planning on a large support structure, since he Vorlon grow quite large.

Review:

This is my best tasing "black/purple" tomato 3 years in a row. Actually probably my favorite overall in the garden, and I typically grow 20 varieties a year. The best way to grow it is early, in WOW coverings and it will be your first tomato of the season. This year I did not do that and they were among the latest. Disease resistent, hardy plants. Amazing dried too, I actually prefer the flavor over Cherokee Purple. Beautiful complex flavor.
