80 day. One of the old standby black tomatoes. It is large, oblong, and reasonably prolific. It has a rich tomato flavor, but isn't as sweet as some of the other varieties.
Minimum of 25 seeds per packet.

My family agrees that this is the best tasting tomato ever!
I planted two of these plants for the first time in my life. I wished I'd planted ten more.
These were planted at the fire station where I work and my crew couldn't keep their hands off of them. The beefsteak, early girls where left behind the cherokee purple.
I'm still harvesting in September and the plants still have blossoms.
I will definitely plant again next year.
