Wow, what an unusual tomato! Several plants in 2016
and 2017 showed these traits: reddish-brown (distinct
from most "blacks", very close to the color "Carnelian",
RGB 179, 27, 27), deeply ribbed (pleated like Zapotec),
oblate fruits with an unusual, distinctive, intense flavor.
Most impressive was yield: 40-50 fruits per plant.
Regular leaf, indeterminate vines, 80 days. Appears
to be stable, as identical results were achieved in 2017
from offspring seeds. Has similarities to Negro
Tegurta, but that variety has never been in inventory.
Also shows similarities to Fleur de Reagir.
Seed source was a batch of Fishlake Oxheart (a red
heart-shaped variety) seeds from a private seed trade.
Discovered and named by Dale Thurber of
Delectation of Tomatoes in 2017.
**Update November 2018**
Crop failure in 2018 - regrettably, not enough seeds
left to fill a fullorder. But I will be glad to send along
a few seeds with your order of other varieties - just
let me know in the "Notes" section at checkout or by
