Beautiful and early variety with fruits that turn shiny black in the sun.

Rich in the powerful antioxidant anthocyanin, these large, stunning fruits offer mild, aromatic tomato flavor improved by full ripening from shiny black to matte purple. Resists cracking and sunscald, with some resistance to late blight. Bred by Brad Gates using an original cross made by PKS Heirlooms in Copemish, MI.

    Cultural Info:

    Indeterminate varieties bear fruit over a long period of time and typically require trellising or staking.

    Determinate types have a concentrated fruit set and a shorter growth habit, therefore don’t require trellising.

    Plant Spacing:

    For determinate varieties 12-18"

    For indeterminate 24-36"

    Row Spacing:

    4-6’ centers

    Greenhouse Tomatoes - maintain 4 square ft/plant.

    Other Considerations:

    Black plastic is recommended is cool climates, especially to help warm the soil, keep moisture even and cut down on weed pressure and soil borne diseases.

    Floating row covers can provide extra warmth in the early season, but be sure to remove when temps are warmer than 85 degrees.

    For varieties requiring staking, place stake in row every two or three plants, tie twine to end stake and walk down one side of the row, looping twine around each stake until the end. Return down the other side of row, again looping twine around each stake, so that plants are sandwiched between two sides of twine.


    Harvest tomatoes fully ripe for best flavor.

    Tomatoes can also be harvested green or at first blush and ripened off the vine at temperatures above 70°F.


    Store between 55° - 70°F at 95% relative humidity. Storing below 50°F can result in chilling damage.
