Ukrainian Purple Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) Indeterminate
Sweet, savory, and a delectable sauce-maker. This reliable, purply-black plum variety is meaty and crack-resistant. Because it tolerates cooler temps (40F), it continues to produce late into the season. While the Ukrainian Purple is a colorful, flavor-packed sauce tomato, its meaty flesh also makes a rich scrumptious fresh salsa. Chop and use to garnish almost anything!
