Japanese Black Trifele Tomato June 1, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — austinurbangardens @ 1:19 pm

I served the first of the black tomatoes this weekend to company in a salad.  They were a little scared of them at first when they saw me cutting them up.  They certainly don’t look like a run of the mill tomato.  They aren’t exactly black, but really deep, dark, blackish red.  They are not quite round either, more pear shaped.   They were wonderful with a little salt and pepper, and mixed in the salad.  Sweet, and very low in acidity.  I highly recommend this heirloom variety.  So far, my favorite heirlooms are this one, Mr. Brown and Cherokee Purple.
