About Tim’s Black Ruffle

‘Tim’s Black Ruffle’ tomato is a beautiful, strongly ribbed fruit. Large, indeterminate, regular-leaf tomato plants yield the most beautiful 8-10 oz., brilliant garnet-purple, and pleated tomatoes. The plant is moderate to heavy producer of fruit. The fruit is packed with the delicious flavors you would expect from the best of the black tomatoes. Sweet, well-balanced, and meaty. Makes a great purple tomato sauce and addition to the tomato salad.
