70 - 80 days - Determinate vines
This heavy fruited, heirloom variety dates back to the early 1900's! and is my personal favourite.
The skin and flesh are a beautiful, dense red to green. The black colours up with maturity and sunlight.
Best planted either very late winter or late summer.
It has a good acid taste as a salad tomato and is best served sliced to appreciate the tone.
They do well in cool areas and we have them growing right through winter until the frosts hit.
Best germinated during Summer though.
