Sounds like a good list. You seem to like you some black tomatoes! Of those you’ve grown, I’ve only grown Paul Robeson, Gordost Sibiri and Mortgage Lifter. Our tomatoes got hit by deer bad this season, so I didn’t get a good evaluation of some varieties.
I can say tho, that GS is a solid producer, good disease resistance, and the fruit has a good flavor. We’ll grow it again next year.
I have tried PR for the last two seasons, but disease and deer only allowed a few fruit for me. But, I do like it, kinda has that smokey black tom flavor. Don’t know if it’ll get a spot next year.
We seem to have problems with the purple/black tom’s here, but this one performed the best. We’ve also tried Black Krim, and Black Trifele, and Black Brandywine, and they didn’t do well.
ML seemed to grow well, but after two seasons, its production and blah flavor lost it its spot in the garden.
I’m not saying those that did poorly are bad varieties, I’m still learning how to grow these things well. Seems I’m fighting deer and disease alot here.
I can say that Chocolate Cherry, Gordost Sibiri, Jaune Flamme, Russian Queen and De Barao have been our favorites and best performers.
I’ll list our potential varieties for next year in another post.
