Black Russian Tomato

75 days. No, this incredibly delicious heirloom Tomato hasn't been struck by blight! Okay, it's purplish-red, almost black, with greenish-black flesh, and folks react strongly to its dramatic appearance. We adore them, as do chefs in the Napa Valley, where we enjoyed our first taste of Black Russian: in the garden of a famous market grower. Now, he harvests his biggest and best fruit for seed grown exclusively for us. This results in fruits which are almost beefsteak-size, growing on semi-determinate vines. Honestly, the skin is thin and prone to cracking and sunburn, but the uniquely sweet flavor is out-of-this-world. (OP.)
