This unique "black" tomato has dusty-rose-brown skin with green shoulders. The large fruits weigh 8-12 ounces. They have a rich, sweet and smoky flavor, comparable to Cherokee Purple.
The history of this tomato is unknown. But it has been popular ever since it appeared on the scene in 1998. Brought into circulation by George Weiss of North Babylon, NY, who listed it in the Seed Savers Yearbook.
