Solanum lycopersicum

This complex, delicious salad tomato will break you out of tasteless, pasty tomato prison!

We couldn't help anointing this work-in-progress with the apropos name suggested by farm friend Katie Battazzo. The seeds originally came from CSA member Carol Cole, who bought the plant from a local nursery as a Black Krim. But when the fruits ripened, they were smaller (2") with orange splotches on an otherwise Black Krim-style fruit. The flavor proved to be the best of all worlds--the complex, superb flavor of the Krim with the sweet, citrusy flavor of a good orange salad tomato. Still in its 3rd generation, it seems to breed true but, like Crazy Eyes Suzanne, prepare for some surprises, Dandelion!
