Japanese Black Trifele (medium pear shaped purple tomato)
Russian origin. In Russia the Trifele varieties of tomatoes (of which there are several colors) are highly prized and command big prices. Heirloom plant yields prolific quantities of 6 oz. fruit that looks like a beautiful mahogany-colored Bartlett pear with greenish shoulders. Very tasty flesh with a meaty interior that produces luscious fruit all summer long. A work of art sliced out on a plate and a wonderful flavor that possesses extraordinary rich and complex flavors. The Black Trifele is one of the blackest varieties available and is resistant to cracking. Plum or pear-shaped tomatoes are particularly well-suited for canning, sauces and salsas. Plant has an indeterminate growth habit (needs a tall tomato cage). No sub for this beauty, as it's unique!
