About Aker’s West Virginia Black

‘Aker’s West Virginia Black’ is a variety discovered by Tatiana Kouchnareva in 2006 among ‘Aker’s West Virginia’ tomato plants. It is probably an accidental cross of ‘Aker’s West Virginia’ with an unknown black tomato variety.
‘Aker’s West Virginia Black’ produces medium to large (6-16oz./180-480g), flattened, and slightly ribbed brown/black beefsteak-type tomatoes. Very meaty and juicy flesh and excellent, rich tomato flavor. Indeterminate, tall, and strong, regular leaf plants with a very good yield. Late, about 85-90 days to maturity.

      Hi Chris, you are welcome to use our tomato database search tool to help you locate desired traits. On the left side of each page in the database, scroll down to 'Flavor Profile' and select 'Acidic'- the database will pull up all tomato entries with that flavor profile. Enjoy!
