Black Prince

Purple-Black Tomato Ind.75 days

I grew Black Prince for the first time two years ago and decided it was a keeper. They have all the rich complex flavor and smooth texture of Black Krim, but are small (3-7 ounces) and round. Beautiful, iridescent red-black fruits with less cracking than Black Krim.

NEW HEIRLOOM SLICER


Dark Queen

Purple-Black Tomato Ind.85 days

One lb. fruits are very rich & meaty. This variety looks and even tastes like our beloved Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye but actually comes from a different line from Beauty King. It ripens later than Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye but tolerates higher heat.

HEIRLOOM SLICER FAVE


Japanese Black

Purple-Black Tomato Ind.74 days

This tomato is becoming one of my best sellers. Customers love the flavor and the good productivity. Despite the name, this is actually a Russian “black” tomato. The potato-leafed plant has very good yields of medium sized, pear-shaped dark red tomatoes. Harvest when shoulders are a bit green for best flavor. Flavor is excellent and rich with a hint of smoke. 74 days

Large Barred Boar

This plant grow stocky and not as tall as a regular indeterminate, so it’s good for a large container. Flattened 8-12 ounce beefsteak fruits are pink-brown with metallic green striping on the skin and pink flesh inside. Very flavorful and good meaty texture. From Brad Gates at Wild Boar Farms.

This may be the most purple of the purple tomatoes. The 3-inch fruits are very flat, ribbed, and ruffled, and have an intense sweet-tart taste with a twist of citrus! Very unique. Very good yields all the way until frost.

CONTAINER DWARF TOMATO FAVE


Bundaberg Rumball

Purple-Black Tomato Ind.60 days

One of the parents of this new dwarf in the popular heirloom, Black form Tula, and it has that same rich flavor. This is my favorite dwarf as far as flavor and production! The chocolate colored fruits are small, have a balanced, sweet flavor. Early bearing and doesn’t quit all season!

CONTAINER DWARF TOMATO FAVE


Tasmanian Chocolate

Purple-Black Tomato Ind.85 days

This dwarf was one of the most compact (3’9″ tall) and heaviest producers of the new dwarf releases. The oblate fruits range from five to 12 ounces and ripen to a deep mahogany color. The flavor is full, balanced, and delicious, with some of it’s parent, Paul Robeson, flavor coming through. This is a good selection for a container, small garden, or for growing in a climate where fruit set is a challenge.
