D. B. Cooper is a variety that was selected and stabilized by Millard Murdock of East Flat Rock, North Carolina, USA from an accidental bee cross between Marianna’s Peace and an unknown black tomato. It is named after the famous plane hijacker from back in 1971 (not his real name, but the name he used to board his plane). Indeterminate, potato leaf plants, that produces medium to large (about 8-20 oz.), purple-black colored, round and oblate beefsteak-type tomatoes. Early for a beefsteak, first ripe fruit can be harvested about 70 days after transplant.
