Ridiculously good, earthy, smoky tomato flavor. Chocolate is rich and complex. This Russian black tomato is one of the best ones out there. It produces big crops of nice size mostly 8 ounce tomatoes on very strong plants. Makes some of the best single variety salsa you will ever eat. This is truly one of my favorites. No garden should be without a few black tomatoes and Chocolate would be a good place to start.
