A sweet fruity flavor that is great for fresh eating. Purple color with metallic green striping. Beautiful in mixes with the other Artisan tomatoes.
Fruits are medium sized, 8-12 ounces, beefsteaks that are wonderful for slicing or canning. Originates in Crimea, a peninsula in the Black Sea.
Tomato has semi-meaty flesh with average seed/flesh ratio. Offers some of the best flavor with an earthy-sweet, rich taste that is delicious eaten raw.
This a favorite heirloom tomato partly because of its dark purple and partly because of it's wonderful taste. 3 tomato plants.
