Black beauty tomato, the darkest of all tomatoes! 

Known as the darkest of all tomatoes, the Black Beauty variety is highly rich in anthocyanins. It was bred by Brad Gates of Wild Boar Farm, a cross-hybrid of the Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye and Indigo Apple. Though the Black Beauty may not be as productive as some other varieties, it offers an unusual taste and flavor experience worth the wait. It additionally stores well after harvest.
