You'll find dozens of ways to eat these gorgeous purplish-brown tomatoes with red centers after you taste their balanced, sweet, acidic flavor!

These tomatoes are so delicious! They are smaller in size, dark on the outside, and red on the inside. So unusual and delicious. I often just pick these right off the plant and eat them! I've chosen this tomato for at least the 4 summers since I first discovered them!

Uniquely beautiful and tasty addition to your garden space!

Very unusual tomatoes that start out a beautiful shade of glossy purple and lime green and ripen to a darker matte brown and red shade a little larger than a cherry tomato. Could be grown just for it's ornamental value but it is tasty as well. Will definitely grow again next year.
