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!

Review:

There are a lot of pros and cons to this tomato. First off, it was my first homegrown tomato. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed! The FLAVOR of this was amazing. It was meaty and tasted like a mix of an apple and a pear. My kids went crazy over it. I didn’t get it into the ground until July (I know it was late). Our backyard flooded multiple times and we had to invest in raised beds which was an unexpected cost. The fruit were small. It was not productive. Took forever to ripen. The hornworms loved it. It got sick before my sungold cherries, however it was strong and kept going! Despite all of that... the flavor was amazing!! I will grow way more plants next year. If you love apples and pears then you will love these. The flavor is phenomenal. I’m sad that i have to wait until 2020 to eat more of these delicious fruit lol. 10/10 would recommend for the flavor alone!

Review:

This was the most disappointing tomato of the 14 varieties I grew. This is my second year attempting this one, and I still have yet to get one that is edible! They're very prone to cracking, and even in October they're still not ripe. I picked one that was red on the bottom and let it sit on the counter for a few days; it was starting to rot by the cracks and was still unripe and flavorless everywhere else. Also, for some reason, this plant was heavily attacked by cutworms, when all the surrounding plants had minimal damage. I'm going to try this one more time next year, but I'm not too hopeful.

Review:

I was really excited about these! Great germination, and we got a lot of fruit. The problem is that it is early October and the fruit is still not ripe! While they did turn black, the bottom is still green and has been for over a month. I planted a bunch of these with my high school students and was getting excited about making black tomato salsa with them, but we may lose the harvest at this point due to frost. The few that have ripened have been great! We started the seeds mid-April in the greenhouse and planted outside at the end of May, and they have received plenty of sunlight and water. Help!

Review:

Good flavor, quick initial growth compared to other varieties growing this year. Put out so many flowering heads that it produced too many tomatoes down below early on. Would advise removing some flowers if this happens with this variety. More susceptible to fungus later in year that other's I grew this year Rutgers 250 shermerhorn, raspberry lyanna, jasmine.

Review:

While others may have had better luck with this tomato, it came in last in a taste test (6 tasters) among Carbon, Paul Robeson, Black Brandywine, Cherokee Purple, and it conducted on Aug.1 this year in NC. Perhaps we tasted it too early? By the way, all of our tasters agreed that all of these dark tomatoes tasted better than either of the red tomatoes tasted at the same time (Big Beef and Beefmaster), Unfortunately, dark tomatoes often don't seem to be as dependable here year in and year out as those two. I suppose I will always plant BB and BM as insurance against fickle growing conditions.
