78 days. (indeterminate) [Late 1800's heirloom from the Black Forest region of Germany from Joe Bratka's grandfather. Seed donated by heirloom tomato enthusiasts Carolyn Male and Craig LeHoullier. Introduced in 1994 by Dr. Jeff McCormack at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.] An outstanding performer in hot, humid areas. Has excellent resistance to foliar and fruit diseases such as alternaria, late blight, and blossom end rot. This is one of the most blemish-free tomatoes that we have grown. Unlike other crack-resistant varieties, it has a soft tender texture. Produces smooth, round, attractive, pink-purple fruits weighing 4 to 5 ounces. Evenly ripening fruits are easy to harvest, some dropping from the vine at peak ripeness. 'Eva Purple Ball' is great in salads, sandwiches, and sauces (the skin peels easily). A wonderful all-purpose tomato with excellent flavor.
