Black Prince

About Black Prince

Originally from Siberia, this is one of the most popular and favored black tomatoes. Originally introduced from Irkutsk, Russia, and is regarded as a “true Siberian tomato” that does very well in cooler climates. Until only recently this was considered a rare variety in the United States. However, its popularity has grown so much in Russia that there is now a company in Volograd that is producing an extract of the Black Prince called “Black Prince Tomato Oil.” The Black Prince tomato is said to have considerable health benefits beyond the presence of lycopene. These deep garnet round, 2-inch (2-3 oz.) tomatoes are full of juice and incredibly rich fruity flavors. Chefs rave about black Prince for its rich flavors. The small fruits contain deep rich colors on the inside. A great variety for patio gardens. Perfect for eating fresh, and in cooking in tomato sauce, or other culinary wonders. A good canning tomato.
