About Noire Charbonneuse

The name means ‘Black like Coal’ in French. ‘Noire Charbonneuse’ hails from France. Its history is described as being a cross between the French tomato ‘CharbonniËre’ and an unknown red variety. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 6-12 oz., medium-sized, smooth purple/black beefsteak fruits with dark meaty flesh and excellent flavor. The flesh is dark red and meaty as a rare steak. The flavor is deep and an excellent balance of sugar and acid.
