A pretty, striped tomato with a nice earthy, black flavor. Black & Brown Boar was one of my earliest tomatoes this year. Tomatoes are small (2-4 oz) and and the plant is prolific.

Flavor is very good to even outstanding -- I was pleasantly surprised. Juicy, good texture. Tastes more like a dark than a striped variety. Fruits are a little larger than Jaune Flammee.

Black and Brown Boar is a stable (or mostly stable) unknown cross that arose in the fields of Bradley Gates of California. As far as possible parentage goes -- he says of some of the crosses that have appeared in his fields that he has saved/shared seed for: "I do know that most came from Big Rainbow, Marvel Stripe, Brandywine, Cherokee Purple, Black Krim, and Green Zebra..."

Brad's description -- "Black and Brown Boar- similar to a Cherokee Purple with flashy stripes. Includes the flavor that has made dark tomatoes famous."
