World’s Darkest Tomato-- The darkest tomato we know of! A dark, meaty, very rich-fleshed tomato with extreme anthocyanin expression (same antioxidant in blueberries and blackberries). So dark that some tomatoes turn solid blue-black on the skin. Deep red flesh is among the best tasting of all tomatoes. Rich, smooth and savory with earthy tones. Hangs well on the vine and stores very well, and the flavor improves with room-temperature storage. Our own Dave Kaiser tasted it at the 2015 National Heirloom Exposition and proclaimed it as the BEST tomato he had ever eaten!

What are the pros? Hard to say...

What are the cons? Slow to ripen, flavor, color

Review:

I planted four of these in 2017 along with three other variety of tomatoes throughout the garden and all the plants flourished, growing tall and bushy. They were peppered with abundant green fruit that was rock hard for much of the summer. I was really disappointed that even by the end of the season only a handful of tomatoes from these four plants were ripe enough to eat, and none achieved close to a fully "black" color. It was fun to experiment but I wont be growing these again.

What are the pros? So. Many. Tomatoes.

What are the cons? Most of them rotted for me.

Review:

My six plants were pretty compact, but they set a RIDICULOUS amount of fruit. At one point, I had what must have been 30 lbs of tomatoes on a single plant. They grew in bunches like cherry tomatoes, only most of them were about 1.5 lbs - so imagine 10 to 15 lb bunches of huge dark black tomatoes. I was busy with life this season and not as attentive as I would have liked, so it may been my inattention, but despite the volume of fruit, these weren't great for me. They were beautiful indeed, jet black just like the pictures, but had no taste. They seemed to go straight from not-quite-ripe to rotted-on-the plant with no point where they seemed ripe and ready to eat. I ended up with a huge pile of rotted fruit and ended up pulling the plants. Going to try one plant this year and give it a lot more attention. I hope it will be great the second time around, but If it doesn't really wow me, then I'm done with it.

What are the pros? dark leaves

What are the cons? won't ripen

Review:

I had about a dozen of these, and almost every tomato got black where the sun hit it, while the rest of it stayed bright green. The majority of them rotted before they'd finish ripening. I brought the last few in, and one of those did finally get mostly black. One out of... how many? Sounded really interesting. Wasted a lot of time and space.

What are the pros? Look

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

I tried for 2 years and decided that it is waste of energy. It is good only for look. Taste similar to store bought in winter. I have grown other black tomatoes for years and there is no comparison to other kinds.
