Here is a lovely “black” tomato that is loaded with flavor as well as production. This 2 oz. tomato, along with its other Vernissage cousins, is sure to make a big splash in the garden as well as the kitchen. These are perfect for rich tasting sauces.

Review:

I got these as a free tomato and planted them on a whim. I started them in February inside and got 100% germination. They were a happy seedling and grew really quickly. I placed 6 outside after the first frost (about mid April zone 6a). They got huge and put on fruit really early (mid May) but the fruit took forever to ripen. I cut off suckers (these plants have so many), cut off excess flowers and tomatoes on each end. I got my first ripe group in the first week of July and it's mid August. I'd say I've harvested over 200 tomatoes off these plants and they are still going strong. They aren't a great fresh tomato but I've used them for sauce, sun dried them, and made a ton of tomato soup and they are great for that. The nice thing is that they are small, so they mature quickly, but they aren't so small they aren't worth cooking with. My average tomato size is about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. I will grow a few next year to compliment other varierties.

Review:

Great little tomato. Great taste and LOTS of flavor. Mine were mealy, but we had a LOT of rain throughout July and into August. Fairly tolerant to early blight. Tastes ALMOST as good as the black cherry that showed up here several years ago. I will include them in the wild/self seeding/volunteers I throw around every year.

Review:

I have 30 in my garden. They were started indoors a month early (first week of may). Harvesting just started yesterday. Three months from seed to harvest, not bad for a tomato. I pruned them back to the main stem when abut 18 inches tall. I did not stake or cage them. Whish I did a little. They are a bit viney, and heavy spreading. They sprawl and crawl with lots of branches. The entire plant is four to five feet long, but with lots of long branches. I trained them to grow somewhat straight, parellel with each other like I do with my cucumbers. If I didn't, the whole bed would be a tangled jungle. They produce very consistent sized friut. Ripen two or three weeks earlier than my beefsteaks. The friut are nicely round and don't split like beefsteaks. When fully fipe, they are soft and juicey. Flavor simular to other black tomatoes. A very full and meaty, but soft tomato. I will try them out at market next summer.

Pretty and Terrible Tasting
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? Horrible Taste

Review:

Got these for free. They were without a doubt the worst tomato I have ever eaten. It is a prolific producer so my kitchen was full of unusable tomatoes all the time. But they looked pretty in a bowl on the kitchen counter. Other gardening friends didn't believe me so they tried them. Spit them out each time. Terrible tomato. I ended up pulling the plant in early August. A waste of garden space and soil nutrients.

What are the pros? Prolific, early producer

What are the cons? Not best for fresh eating

Review:

Like many of the other reviews, I didn’t like the taste when the fruit ripened, but I tried picking these just as they turned pink and the difference in taste is incredible. Much better! It’s not a sweet tomato and it ripens in a day or two after picking. I took the ripened tomato and made a sauce, straining it after cooking to get out the bitter seeds. The sauce is amazing! Deep flavor. The plant is crazy prolific with 12-15 tomatoes on most trusses and it’s now 12 feet tall. If you disliked the taste fresh, try making sauce with it!
