A wonderful black - purple colored large beefsteak, with green shoulders and a luscious creamy flavor. Plants are very productive and said to be early(ish). A favorite of many and yet not well known.
As with all black tomatoes, plants do best in the early spring and later in the fall as the summer heat subsides.
