About Black Beauty

‘Black Beauty’ tomato is a beautiful creation from Brad Gates of Wild Boar Farms. It was introducted as ‘World’s Darkest Tomato’. Selected from a cross made between ‘Pink Berkeley Tie Dye’ and ‘Indigo Apple’. 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.
