Tomato Black Sea Man - Heirloom
Common Name: Tomato, Black Sea Man
Latin: Lycopersicon, Lycopersicon esculentum We planted the Black Tomato in our garden this year. We love the taste and the uniqueness. Thanks for looking.
This tomato is loved for it's wonderful color and succulent sweetness. It has a unique flavor that is also rich and complex. It is reputed to be one of the finest tasting tomato on the market. These tomatoes are a deep dark purple, almost black color and produce medium size fruits on small plants.
The darker the tomato the higher the content of lycopene. Lycopene is an anti-oxidant that is responsible for the removal of free radicals from the body, 10 times more effective the vitamin E. Tomato's are the ultimate preventative medicine. They reduce the risk of stomach, lung, and prostate cancer. In addition they are good for the heart and will reduce a woman's risk of delivering a child with spinal cord and/or brain defects.
We start seeds indoors and that gives them a better start in the garden. We plant them about 24 inches apart or better as they really spread out.
