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.

What are the pros? Fast Growing & Early to Mature

What are the cons? Taste - not a favorite

Review:

These were really strong seedlings and the healthiest of my starters. They grew well with a lot of fruit. The fruit is healthy and matured quickly. Just not a huge fan of the taste. Can't quite put my finger on why. They are small - maybe golfball size or a bit larger. Won't be growing these again, but worth giving them a try.

What are the pros? Grows well, pretty

What are the cons? Must harvest at first blush

Review:

This tomato grows fairly easily, is still producing though high temperatures have set in suddenly and early, but fruit must be harvested as soon as full color begins or it becomes mushy and flavorless. It isn't the best choice in our high temperatures.

What are the pros? Easy, fast growing

What are the cons? Don't know yet

Review:

Everyone has their idea of what a tomato is supposed to taste like. My plants haven't had any ripe fruit yet, so I don't know what my particular plants will produce. I do know that of the dozen or more tomato varieties that I sowed, every Black Vernissage grew faster and stronger than any of the others. They were also the first to recover when transplanted outside and are twice as tall as my other plants. They were also the first to flower and today they showed the first fruit. If ease of growing is the measure of a good tomato, this one would take first place. We'll have to see about the taste before I would consider recommending it.

Review:

I grew these for the first time last spring/summer and they did amazing in my climate. The first fruit set very early and they kept on producing up into the fall. I've now started several plants from seeds saved last year and they are doing just as well this time around. Easy, no fuss, and delicious.

Review:

I was hesitant to give these free seeds much space in my garden, as I did not know how they would perform in my hot, humid south Louisiana environment. They grew great and produced many fruit. Everyone liked the unusual appearance. In contrast to other reviewers, I thought they tasted great. Maybe because I just barely like raw tomatoes -- I am not a tomato connoisseur at all. Many are too sharp for my taste. I liked that the Black Vernissage tomato was very meaty. It had very little open space or water when quartered and eaten raw. The fruits are small (slightly larger than a golfball), but that was fine with me. I had several branches with 8 or more tomatoes maturing in sequence. The plants produced well. I started all of my tomato seeds on Feb 1st. This was the perfect day to sow seeds this year. Last freeze was late January, with perfect weather for transplanting in late February. Best varieties: Sweet 100 Cherry, Creole, Black V, Better Boy.
