Black Beauty Tomato

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? Great taste

What are the cons? Hard to know when ripe

Review:

This was the first year growing these tomatoes and mine also were not black all over they looked a lot like the Lucid Gem but instead of yellow orange like the Lucid Gem were a burgundy brick red at the bottom. I let a few over to open because I did not know when to pick. Mine looked more like the blue beauty tomato than the black one. They were great producers but the stink bugs ate holes in these and the Lucid gem tomstoes. I have never had this issue before and it caused a lot of damage. The taste however was worth all the trouble they are a juicy sweet tomstoe that is perfect in anything.

Review:

I planted 10 varieties this year and this one tied for first place in early production and yield! The flavor has many levels and is interesting from first bite. My only problem is telling when it is ready to pick. They are beautiful on the vine.

Review:

These tomatoes are truly so dark they are purple/ black! The flavor is deliciously rich and in my opinion a Really good tomato flavor! One I would use for my spaghetti sauce, chli and salsas! I started them in doors about 7 weeks before planting and they have grown well. However it is the beginning of august and I have only had 2 ripen and the others don't seem close to ripening. I have trimmed any new flowering off and I'm hoping for them to put their energy into getting ripe for canning! I will most definitely grow these year after year!

Review:

This was a great find. I am growing a plant from the local farm and garden store and one that I grew out from a seed I got from this website. The one I grew from seed is pretty far behind the other one due to a late start on my part. That being said it is producing more fruit. These tomatoes do not turn out colored all the way around. The bottoms are rusty brick red when ripe. I don't really care about that because of all of it's good traits. It is only July and so far my first tomato was from one of these plants. They put the early girls to shame in regards to number of fruit and earliness of ripening. they are also the tallest in the garden so far. Not much of a smell to this one but the taste is very complex first slightly acidic and sweet then very earthy and almost like wine. I will be growing these again for sure as they do well in my poor soil. I grow with organic food and guano teas. I would say anyone who likes purple cherokee,prudens purple or black krim would love these!

Review:

We seed started in February inside with soil blocks and transplanted late due to extended cold snap. They Hardened off quickly and there was no transplant shock. We pruned them and they were one of the first plants to begin producing. They are turning a deep deep color just as described. Cannot wait to try these!
