A friend of Lisa Von Saunder (Tim) who has a degree in botany and ecology, and worked under the tutelage of a famous gardener, author, William Woys Weaver, experimented for years with this fantastic tomato cross of Black Krim and Zapotec Pink Pleated. After several seasons he stabilized it and shared the seeds. 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. Rare tomato seeds.
