Wow! No trick photography whatsoever is needed with this astonishing, rare, new, blackest ever tomato, with ornamental darker leaves and stems, and which is seemingly blight and disease-free. It was developed by Oregon State University, but we were the first to sell it commercially! (Please paste RAY BROWN GROWS BLACK TOMATOES into your browser to see our proprietor with the first ever trials video!) Amaze your friends with trusses of large, fruity-flavoured, unbelievably jet-black, plum-sized fruits, which ripen late in summer to a deepest purple, and when sliced resemble plums with their deep purple-red flesh. It is the first tomato in the world that has anthocyanins actually in its fruit (which are antioxidants, and the same black pigment as in blueberries). Be one of the first to try this black tomato with its clean, strong, clear flavour, a satisfying, dense texture, and a show-stopping appearance, along with the health benefits. This is your chance!

Coverseeds only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, eg a window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. Around time of last frost, set seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant. Late ripener, harvest when skin goes soft and flesh changes from green to plum-red.
