My favorite tomato overall for year 2010. First to fruit, last to stop fruiting. Best flavor 2010. Fruit are pear shaped and almost the size of a baseball. Does well wet or dry. Potato leaf trait. The Japanese Black Trifele Tomato (Estonian: Tomat Jaapani trüffel) is one among an entire family of so-called “Japanese Trifele” Tomatoes that are produced commercially in Russia today. Originally, a stock of red pear shaped tomatoes were imported to the former Soviet Union which soon became popular. In fact, the variety became so popular that Russian seed breeders set their sites on creating other colors of Japanese Trifele Tomatoes. Currently, Japanese Trifele Tomatoes are offered in Russia in the following colors: Black, Orange, Yellow and Red. There is also a second Black variety (developed by NC Seeds) called “Must pirn” which is a pleated black pear that is closely related to the Black Trifele Tomatoes. Japanese Black Trifele features an absolutely wonderful flavor that possesses an extraordinary richness. Unlike many other black varieties, the tomatoes yielded are blemish free and are not subject to cracking. Originally imported from Estonia. About 20 seeds per packet.
