What are the pros? Great tasting early tomato
What are the cons? Cracking
We have a short season for large variety tomatoes before heat stops fruit production and blight kills the plants. Though the heat came early this year, I am getting a good crop from this variety and they taste good, and have nice texture. I am eating them in tomato salad with cucumbers, mint, and feta topped with coarse salt and splashes of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

What are the pros? great production, disease-free
What are the cons? none
Growing/production info: This tomato has been trouble-free for me. I've grown it two years in a row, once from a couple plants bought at the store, then this past summer from seeds purchased at Baker Creek. The plants were prolific and the fruits delicious. The first tomatoes from these plants ripened around the same time as my cherry tomatoes (early), yet I was able to harvest fruits all the way until frost. Great longevity on these. Tomato quality: I love the medium size, blocky fruits produced by Black Prince. They're not huge 'n' watery, so they work well in a variety of eatin' applications. The taste is fantastic and rich, just like a nice dark tomato should be. I will definitely grow this one again next year. It's my #1 tomato these days!
What are the pros? Flavour
What are the cons? None
I bought this as a plant not thinking much, but now I have to buy the seeds! The tomatoes I got are paler and more orange with green/brown shoulders. But they were definitely ripe. The plant is healthy, not too sprawling or unmanageable. The size of the fruit was small to medium for me. Not very prolific. But the flavour was fantastic. A bit smoky, tangy, sweet with a hint of saltiness. I can't wait for more to ripen!

What are the pros? tasty
What are the cons? could produce more
These should be renamed "Chocolate Soldier". They are loyal, dedicated troopers and so much want to win the early battle.
They're more brown in color, rather than black (as are some with high anthocyanins). They're better flavored, too. Sometimes they're too ready, being soft in HOT weather before the color of the skin changes, so gardeners should check these closely.
THEY ARE VERY TASTY.
