To answer you Lulu, we live in the frozen north, in a street that looks like something out of Corrie. The only window ledge is the kitchen, and unfortunately, because of the house lay out, we have no sun there, because the houses are built so close together they overshadow the window.

I love growing tomatoes, and this year I noticed that I had yellow tomatoes. I bought 20 plants and I guess some were mismarked. Well I canned the yellow ones and they are so pretty. Great tasting fresh from the garden also.Next year I will surly buy some more yello ones. I have never seen a black tomatoe but will check my seed catalogs for next year.

Here in Australia, I've been trying to get some Black Russian tomatoes for ages. For some reason they are more difficult to grow than other tomatoes. But, now on attempt FIVE, I've got some little fruit coming on. I'm told they have an interesting smoked-tomato flavour.

I'm very fond of yellow tomatoes. They are much sweeter than the ordinary reds.

Recently I bought a punnet of 4 tomato plants - one red, one black, one yellow and one which is green with white stripes when ripe! Should make for some interesting salads.

I had some that were almost black, but I can't remember the name. They were delicious. A friend in Virginia sent us several different types (not black) that he grew and they are delicious and vary from a very deep tomato taste to a very mild. I suppose he has a knack for gardening.

the heirloom tomatoes are awesome...such flavor! I love those you describe, also the green zebras and the yellow red striped ones. I also long for the Jersey/Pennsylvania Beefsteak when in season...

LOVE Green Zebra, & grow some every year - good tangy tomato flavor. Wasn't as impressed with Mr. Stripey (one of the red/yellow striped types) & don't bother with it anymore - taste was just "ok", & I found the texture to be a bit on the mealy side.

"Ever had black tomatoes?"

Anything my dad cooks comes out black . . . .

Sad, but true . . .

Maybe okay if he was cooking cajun style, but I don't think he knows what that is!

Bummer!

No, no, my dear, there is no live and learn with my dad. Only live, and don't let him cook!

Sorry, back on topic, no, I've never had black tomatoes. Not a big tomato fan, though I like tomato products. Go figure!
