‘Carbon’ tomato was first listed in Seed Savers Exchange 1998 Yearbook by George Weiss of North Babylon, NY, USA.
Vigorous, indeterminate, regular leaf tomato plants produce an abundant yield of large (10-14oz./290-400g) beautiful, deep purple tomatoes. The color of the fruits is most often darker than the photo here indicates, making this variety one of the darkest purple tomatoes with delicious, rich, complex flavors. This tomato variety won a taste test at Cornell Research Farm and Winner of the 2005 ‘Heirloom Garden Show’ best-tasting tomato award. Because of its productivity and flavor, Carbon is becoming popular to grow for commercial produce markets that are seeking more black tomatoes in their tomato mix. The exterior and flavor combine to create a superb slicer, perfect for fresh eating on sandwiches or in salads. Mid-season, about 75-84 days after transplant.
