    This took too long to ripen in Seattle, but the few fruit that came off the vine were amazingly good. Huge, tasty, gorgeous. If I still lived in a warmer clime, I’d plant this again in a heartbeat.

    This is an okay tomato, but it doesn’t have the really rich flavor I would expect from a “black” tomato. Or maybe it’s just me.

    Just a tender, pale curve of green pushing out of the soil. I was worried that the 2-year old seeds wouldn’t germinate, but they’re fine!
