Default Black tomatoes/Chocolate Cherry photo

I live on the Texas Gulf Coast with intense sun and heat (of course). I grow Cherokee Purple every year and it is a beautiful tomato with great taste. This is the second year I am growing Paul Robeson. New black varieties I'm trying this year are Black Cherry, Chocolate Cherry, and J.D.'s C-Tex early. My black tomatoes always have an intense hue. Photo is Chocolate Cherry 3-10-2018.

Donna, zone 9

P.S. The live oaks are dropping/putting on new leaves so the leaves are EVERYWHERE.

Indian Stripe can handle shadier conditions and cooler temps. It's a must for me.

Mine survived in a neglected weed ridden garden without watering much.....the only one that produced a few tomatoes except for the red currants. Hot and dry might be more to their liking.
