Congrats on the harvest. Do u like the flavor, and- Is it really black?
would luv 2 see a pic of it! :)

The flavor is really good! They’re pretty deep red on the outside, and dark purple on the inside. I added a picture of the 4 I’ve harvested so far. The plant is huge, too; it’s trying to take over its neighbors. I’ll save some seeds for swapping!

TY for answering. :)
Given how productive this plant is, Im glad u r saving seeds from it.
Will u bag the blossoms to help prevent accidental crossing of tomato varieties?

I like this pic which shows their outsides.
A pic of a sliced one would be nice to see also. Especially since u say they r darker on the inside.

It’s been amazingly productive! I’m very impressed with it. I should probably bag some blossoms, but I haven’t been. I’ve added bag-making to my to-do list, so hopefully I’ll get to it in the next week or two. I’m not too worried about it suddenly not producing, though!

I’m adding a picture of the inside of one right now; it’s not the best picture in the world, so I’ll take another when the next one ripens as well.

i hear this variety is tough but not bulletproof, so in theory a severe drought, very hi heatwave, or a disease such as late blight might cause it to stop or slow its production.
And its not good to save seeds from diseased plants, so its suggested to bag seeds as soon as possible in the season.

busy ppl who dont ever seem 2 find time 4 sewing their own bags can buy pre made mesh bags at a party supply store, or on ebay. pre made organza bags are commonly used to hold party favors or birdseed at weddings and baby showers, and are not costly.

i think i will use a kneehi nylon stocking plus piece of yarn or twist-tie from the produce section to tie the nylon on with, as my bloom isolation bag- once i have something to isolate. :)
No heirloom tomatoes in flower in my garden yet.

Tango, do all varieties of tomatoes need isolated, or just the potato-leaf varieties like this one? I’ve read both online and wasn’t sure which was right.

Depends who u ask. Seen all kinds of differing opinions about it, even between tomato experts!
Its complicated and can lead to debates, so ill send u a PM to explain more.
