Tomato Seeds: Black Beauty
It was introduced as ‘World’s Darkest Tomato’. Selected from a cross made between ‘Pink Berkeley Tie Dye’ and ‘Indigo Apple’. Black Beauty tomato is a beautiful creation from Brad Gates of Wild Boar Farms. Impressive, dark, deep blue/black color, meaty and very rich flesh with very high anthocyanin impression on both – fruit and plant. Big (6-10 oz/180-300 g) fruit are round or slightly flattened and ribbed on the shoulders. Very tasty with delicious, well-balanced tomato flavor. They can hang long on the vines and can also be stored in room-temperature for few weeks after picking. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant, midseason, first ripe fruit can be harvested about 75 days from transplant. This variety is so "blue" that it looks black. A dark, meaty, very rich-fleshed tomato with extreme anthocyanin expression (same antioxidant in blueberries and blackberries). So dark that some tomatoes turn solid blue-black on the skin. Deep red flesh is among the best tasting of all tomatoes. Flavor potential is excellent. If you ever want a tomato that can be used in a million ways, this would be one of them. Black beauty tomato is a pretty tomato that belongs to the anthology family. Averaging about 6 ounces, Black Beauty has mostly black on the top and fades into a pretty reddish purple on the bottom end. What a sight to see! Antho tomatoes on the same plant can vary in color intensity, so watch out for some very interesting variations!!
Black beauty tomato is earthy, sweetish and has a little bit of tang. Its taste is generally richer than some many other antho varieties.
