Description

New Product!

Among the best-tasting of all tomatoes, period. Super-tomato flavor, with antioxidants galore; comparable levels to blueberries and blackberries. Striking blue-black skin and very meaty, deep-red flesh. Intensely tomato-y, smooth and savory taste, with earthy tones. Add a teaspoon of baking soda to the planting hole to slightly sweeten the fruit. Hangs nicely on the vine, and stores very well – flavor even improves with a couple of days of room-temperature storage. Deer-resistant. Indeterminate.

  • Produce size: 10-14 oz. each

Are they blight resistant?
Ron T on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Heirloom varieties are not known to be blight-resistant; this variety has no documentation available to show resistance to blight. It can be prevented. Blight spores are spread by water; so water the ground, not the leaves. Treat with a fungicide early and regularly (there are many organic options, including this //www.starkbros.com/products/tools-and-supplies/pest-and-disease-controls/bonide-copper-fungicide/). These two practices will keep blight at bay.
are the black beauty tomatoes suitable for canning?
David V on Jan 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, indeed. They are, of course, at their very best as a slicer, but they have meaty flesh that is slightly tart and they make incredible sauce.
Are they deer resistant?
John N on Jan 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All members of the nightshade family - tomatoes, eggplant and peppers - are toxic to deer and they naturally avoid these plants. If there is a drought or food shortage for the deer, they will eat anything, but for the most part, deer will avoid tomatoes.
