Heart's Delite Black
|Heart's Delite Black|
- Regular leaf, compact indeterminate plants. Brown/black beefsteaks with some green shoulders, 6-14 oz, juicy, green gel around seeds. Some minor concentric cracking/scars. Delicious rich flavor. (15 seeds / packet)
- Darrel Jones, Alabama 05
Year grown: 2005, 2006, 2015
- This black strain came from the Heart's Delite seeds that Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T) received from Darrel Jones 05, who in turn received the seeds from Craig LeHoullier (NC LE C). Heart's Delite is a red tomato, therefore this may have been originally a mutation or a cross.
- Tatiana grew Heart's Delite from a different seed source in 2007, and also observed variability in fruit colors - one plant out of four produced black fruits very similar, if not identical, to the 'Heart's Delite Black' fruits grown from Darrel Jones' seed in 2005.
