Vorlon Tomato

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.

One of the best tasting tomatoes I grew in 2015. Many large, luscious black beefsteaks with superb flavor. Can't wait to grow it again.

Review:

What an awesome tomato! I never thought I would find a tomato I would like better then Paul Robeson but this one definitely won me over. Out of the forty varieties we grew last year this one was my absolute favorite. Juicy and sweet yet with the distinct smokey black tomato flavor. In our short season and high elevation it is hard to find a large tomato that will produce well but we were able to get a complete harvest off these tomato plants before the frost (granted we had a late frost but they set off earlier then all the other large tomatoes). Out of all the purple, black tomatoes we grew these were the only ones that did not have any disease issues. Lots of tomatoes with good large size.

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.
