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.

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.

Review:

A market gardener friend brought by 40 Vorlon plants and asked me to save seed for him and try to grow them. I did not expect much frankly but was really impressed when the big, dark red tomatoes started ripening. Excellent high acid flavor. Contrary to several of the reviews here, we had excellent yields. We grow about 1,000 tomatoes a year, nearly all Carbon and Goldies. We can't afford to grow gaieties like Brandywine because of poor yield. Vorlon did as well as Carbon which is my all time favorite variety, both for eating and for growing commercially.

What are the pros? Amazing flavor

What are the cons? Too early to tell

Review:

WOW, I love acid and highly flavored tomatoes. This is a winner! 2014 is my first year growing it but it will definitely have a place in my garden every year now. A perfectly balanced sweet but acidy tomato and really nice color.
