Brad’s Black Heart

About Brad’s Black Heart

Originated from Brad Gates of Wild Boar Farms in California who found it in a patch of Black Krim and stabilized the seed. Indeterminate, droopy regular-leaf plants that yield copious amounts of 12 oz., pink-black, heart-shaped tomatoes (mostly flattened hearts…some pointy, some blunt) with exceptionally rich sweet complex flavors, typical of the best of the black tomatoes. A good producer in cooler growing regions as well as warmer regions. Disease resistant.
