95 days. A completely head-turning tomato, one that is almost truly black! The beef-steak-style fruit average 6 ounces each and packs an intense and memorable flavor experience. Dark purple tomatoes are characterized by a smoky, complex, sweet flavor, and Black Beauty is no exception! One of the most gourmet tomatoes, it makes an alluring centerpiece for your heirloom tomato display and boasts the nuanced flavor profile that is highly sought after by high-end chefs. Black Beauty was bred in Napa Valley, California. It performs exceptionally well in most gardens, especially in dry conditions. Those growers with excessive summer rainfall should try to mitigate excess moisture, as this is a variety from a dry region in California. Fruit varies in the amount of blackness due to light and climate. Some fruit may be well over 50% black on the skin. Flesh color is deep reddish-pink.
