Tomato 'Rose'    This one fell in the "eh- it's okay" category. Good enough, but we only grew it the one year because some other similar tomatoes outshone it by far. It cannot hold a candle to Aunt Ginny's Purple, for instance.

Tomato 'Black Giant'    This was one productive black tomato, meaty, juicy, and with good flavor. Large fruit with good heft.

Tomato 'Purple Passion'    While this one looks very much like Prudens Purple, it tended to be larger and meatier, very solid as well as flavorful.

Our 'Black Krim' tomatoes came from seed our son saved, and looked exactly like this picture.  They tend to get circular cracks around the top, yet this is not a concern, considering how great these tomatoes taste.  This tomato is equal to our Purple Cherokee, and we will definitely be growing it for years to come.

Tomato 'Sunset's Red Horizon'    This one has nice flavor, very meaty. Production was not great, but as it was grown in two back to back subpar tomato years, we plan to give it another chance in 2013.
