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? showy, rich flavor

What are the cons? Long long ripening

Review:

The flavor must be heavily dependent on soil and moisture conditions as well as ripeness. I wouldn't grow these in a container or a semi sun spot - I grew these in-ground, in full sun, in very well drained soil a bit on the acidic side. I started three plants eight weeks early, and all were stocky and strong throughout the cool spring here. I watered during dry spells but they seemed to acclimate well without much attention, and set a ton of fruit. The ripening time is very long, and it's best to wait until they are at least thoroughly pink and a bit softened (in the underside areas that aren't blackened) to pick. Then let them mature to a brick-like color before eating. The dark black areas might lose their shine a little. Under these conditions the flavor was excellent. Didn't have any cracking until we got some heavy rain late in the season. I'll definitely grow this again.

What are the pros? Easy to grow plant, beautiful

What are the cons? Too long to rippen, cracks

Review:

Disappointed with these tomatoes. Plants took off easily and had sooo many tomatoes very early, but took forevee to rippen. By the time they would rippen, they were cracked or started to go bad. The only way to get some was to pick unripe and rippen in house which defeats the purpose. Woulb NEVER plant again

What are the pros? hardy great taste great look

What are the cons? Slow

Review:

I'm having a great season with this tomato here in San Francisco. Abundant beautiful great tasting fruit and no difficulties. Black beauty has held up quite well despite the intermittently cold then blazing hot weather we've had this year. Leaves curled from heat and drought but the fruit has remained abundant and delishious. Top 10 in terms of flavor.

What are the pros? Very unique

What are the cons? Slow to mature and so so eats

Review:

Every last seed germinate and flourished. The vines were laden with fruit and a few actually toppled over. We were off to a great start but then I had issues with the stem ends getting brown and mucky. Almost like blossom end rot on the top! I also had issues with symptoms of nutrition problems although the tomatoes growing next to them were fine. Very slow to mature. If you are looking for a good eating easy to grow tomatoe I wouldn't recommend these as they seem bland to me. If you want to grow something interesting and remarkable then this is definitely a great one and everyone will be interested. Just don't count on it for harvest.

What are the pros? High yield, great color

What are the cons? Bland taste

Review:

I was curious about this tomato's hype and I grew a four-foot bush this year. I harvested a dozen tomatoes after a long battle with the hornworms, and many of the tomatoes had vivid blacks and crimsons. However, the raw flavor was rather bland like a flat diet soda. They made a decent pasta sauce and tomato salad. More of a nifty conservation piece than a great snack.
