All-Black Heirloom Tomato Collection

Many years ago, when we discovered the Cherokee Purple, it instantly became our favorite tomato in the world. I always tell our customers, "If you could take one tomato to a desert island, this is it!"

The intervening years have seen many new varieties of "black" tomatoes -- they come in many dusky hues of purplish, brick, maroon -- especially as new ones have become available for the first time from Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

The black tomatoes are simply incomparable for their complex, often smokey, flavor. We now grow as many of these varieties as we can, currently including:

Black Cherry

Black from Tula

Black Krim

Black Plum

Black Prince

Black Zebra

Cherokee Purple

Chocolate Cherry

Eva Purple Ball

Paul Robeson

Purple Calabash

You may order the 6-tomato collection, or any of the individual varieties. On a related note, you might also enjoy the spectacular Orange-Fleshed Purple Smudge, a unique midsized tomato with a delicious sweet flavor and true purple color randomly appearing on its yellow-orange skin!

Minimum 20-25 seeds.
