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? Fruits easily, tastes amazing

What are the cons? None

Review:

I’m in Missouri. Easily germinated in my basement under grow lights. Grew on a trellis. Fruit was not prone to splitting. They develop a beautiful purple/black color in the sun. The taste is deep and rich. Slightly sweet with end notes of un-ripe strawberry. I will grow these again for sure.

What are the pros? Fruit Color, Plant Color

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

I grew this variety along with several others last year, and it was definitely among the coolest tomatoes I've ever grown. The parts of the fruit exposed to the sunlight are literally almost pitch-black, although the rest of the fruit tends to be a rather unexciting pinkish-red. The plants themselves also have a purplish hue; compared to other varieties they might even look like they're suffering from a nutrient deficiency, but that's the natural color for this particular type. There's honestly not much more to say besides that. The flavor and yield are perfectly acceptable and don't warrant any complaints, though they're not exactly remarkable. But the point of this variety is clearly the color and the nutrient content, not out-of-this-world taste or productivity. I'm not growing it this year, not because it's bad but because there are many other types of exciting tomatoes to try and this one is really nothing more than a novelty. But it's a very entertaining novelty.

What are the pros? Very strong, uniform fruit

What are the cons? None

Review:

High germination, over 90 percent. Fast growing, thick trunk. High fruit set. Tomatoes start turning dark blue when very small. Over 6ft tall on June 15. None ripe yet, but many are almost totally black. Will update when they ripen.

What are the pros? Attractive plant. Very healthy

What are the cons? None

Review:

Best seedlings I have ever started. I have not gotten tomatoes yet, but it looks like they're going to be very productive. The young plants are very strong, very sturdy, and very attractive. They have a moderate to fast growth rate. they're by far the healthiest looking tomatoes are grown. I can't wait to see what they taste like. Germination rate is about 92%.
