What are the pros? love the deep black color

What are the cons? cracks easily

Review:

Really was excited to grow this for the first time. Beautiful purple tinged plants. Fruit looks gorgeous. Plants were really vigorous. Fruit set well, but not as heavily as my Dark Galaxy. Be consistent with your watering and don't over water this one, as it cracks very easily. Experienced growers should do really well with this one. Fruit is ripe when some red begins to show on the blossom end. Seemed to take longer to ripen than the other tomatoes that I grew, but worth the wait. Made the mistake of picking many to early, only to find green flesh. My soils are heavy clay that I did not amend. Will grow again next year with amended soils and heavier duty trellising.

What are the pros? tastes amazing, excellent germ

What are the cons? none

Review:

This tomato surprised many who walked into my garden. I had no idea what to expect, but this tomato the family couldn't get enough of. The size, flavour and yield was amazing. I was eating this tomato like an apple - not as acidic as red ones. It was saddening when the last one was picked off the vine.

Review:

Such a beautiful, unique tomato. We've had a particularly rainy season this year, and I have been struggling with blight with all of my tomatoes, save this one. Very large, happy plant that is prolificly producing large fruit. The fruit is very tasty and meaty, and is delicious both dried, cooked, and fresh. Will be one of my staples from now on!

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

All seeds germinated, plants produced really well, and they looked stunning in the garden. However, the tomatoes did not have as much flavor as I was hoping for. They did not taste bad, they were just a little bland to me. Not quite an "eating tomato," but maybe better for soups, sauces and salsa.

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.
