These were definitely our favorite variety this last growing season. Their rich, smoky black tomato flavor won out by leaps and bounds over our other varieties. While they were not huge producers, the plants survived some of the rougher weather our other plants did not. We did notice they seemed to have a tendency to change shape and flavor a bit depending on where they were at in the garden. We suspect they were cross pollinating with the other plants, so you may want to separate these from your other plants.
