I am so glad we decided to keep this black vernissage tomato plant after the freaky hailstorm that destroyed parts of our garden. This plant seems to have recovered well enough to not only ripen these few tomatoes, but also grow a couple more new ones.
Zach thinks this little tomato has won itself a place in our garden again for next year. It is a hardy plant that resisted blossom end rot and other forms of abuse. And best of all, these tomatoes taste as good as they look! We'll have to make ourselves some caprese salad for lunch tomorrow!
