Fruits are irresistibly delicious with sweet, rich, complex, full tomato flavors that burst in your mouth, characteristic of the best flavorful black tomatoes. Beautiful to mix with other colored cherry tomatoes. Unique tomato variety. Disease resistant. Once you try it...you want MORE.
SIMPLY TOMATOES NOTES:
Growing beautifully, even through cool July. Must note that this plant was slow to propagate, but is very healthy in it's east facing garden so far with lots of young fruit.
This plant has proven to be a real trooper, even in the Bay Area. The first fruits from this large Cherry Tomato variety are not only stunning, but pack a "wallop" of incredible robust tomato flavor. As you can see in the pictures these are really impressive looking fruits. I have taken several platters of tomato varieties to parties and the guests just love the beautiful display that these different fruits make on a plate - and then you taste them! YUM
