Black Tomatoes Category

Black tomatoes are some of the tastiest that you would find. Though in many instances that are not truly black, they are considered so in the tomato world. Good examples are Cherokee Purple, Black Krim and Paul Robeson.

Always among the most popular on our website, we strive to bring you the rarest black varieties, which also pack good flavor. Another must for us, is disease resistance. We feel that black tomato or not, good disease resistance goes a long way to realizing a successful harvest.

We hope that you enjoy surfing our website. Please feel free to leave a comment or suggestion. Happy Gardening!

  • Easily one of the more beautiful anthos, I was glad that Afternoon delight also had good flavor. 4-10 ounce fruits were borne on 5.5 feet plants that produced heavily. Ours began ripening around 75 days from transplant. Plants were hardy and tough. These were in a waterlogged spot in our garden and made it through with flying colors when others succumbed. Fruits have very dark antho on the top side, which fades into a beautiful canary yellow on the blossom end. When sliced, Afternoon Delight tomato is beautifully bi colored, demonstrating yellows and deep pink/purplish. Taste is sweet and mild with fruity tones. This is a real beauty. Nice for slicing, garnish/plating, market sales and so much more. Try this delight in your garden this season!

    Black Magic Tomato

    I planted these and forgot about them. The next thing I knew is I saw some very loaded vines in my garden. When I approached the plants I had no idea what they were. Once I read the labels, I was eager to see what the ripened fruits would look and taste like. At first glance, a ripened Black Magic tomato seems not very different from a lot of the other black varieties, but for me it differed in taste. These have that very rich taste of the black tomato family, but with a bit more complexity than most. A really good experience on sandwiches, when eaten fresh and even sliced in salads. This is one beefsteak that I will definitely grow again. Great choice for market vendors too. Production is good and disease resistance excellent, sturdy plants!

Expect first ripened fruits about 70 days after transplant.
