This 2 metre indeterminate plant bares large dark tomatoes with slight fluting and of excellent flavour. Confusion surrounds the exact origins, but it seems they were bred by Joe Bratka of New Jersey, who invented a family heirloom backstory to meet the demand for heritage tomatoes. Whatever its origins, it’s a great large black tomato, with the typical complex flavours of the best blacks. Also known as Schwarze Sarah.
