Black Tomatoes

“Black” tomatoes are fast becoming the new “red” tomato. “Black” tomatoes are not really black. Black tomatoes covers a range of dark colors (deep purple, dusky deep brown, smoky dark mahogany color with dark green shoulders, blueish-brown). The depth and darker range of colors seems to be encouraged by a higher acid and mineral content in the soil or higher temperatures.

Black tomatoes have become very popular. The black tomatoes are native to Southern Ukraine during the early 19th century. They originally existed in only a small region on the Crimean Peninsula. Soon they were showing up as new varieties in many all shapes and sizes began to appear throughout the territories of the former Soviet Union. Then they began turning up in the former Yugoslavia, Germany, and the United States.

Black tomatoes are most appreciated for their especially bold, complex and earthy flavors. We are proud to present our outstanding line of black heirloom tomato plants and black open-pollinated tomato plants.
