I loved, loved, loved this tomato. Nice, sweet taste on perfect fruits.

Perfect fruits and high yield. No catfacing, splitting or cracking. No BER. Taste? Can't tell the difference between nyagous, Carbon and Noire de Crimee. All blacks grown this year (my first year putting out more than a few plants), including black cherry, are bland. Of 30 cultivars, the blacks were the least favorite of everyone. Not unpleasant, simply little taste at all. As growers in other areas say their blacks are wonderful, I have to assume a local factor was involved. The weather here was ideal for tomatoes. Perhaps they need a little stress. Because the crop was huge and no one came back for seconds, I slow roasted the blacks with olive oil and salt. That brought out some taste.

This one did well for me. This is a black, but NOT prone to cracking and cat-facing. Good, complex, earthy flavor and blemish-free fruit borne in trusses. Juicy texture. The shoulders are a dark olive green that blends and fades into the brown and dark crimson from top to bottom. Brown and red interior with green gel.
