Jackie is the best purple black anthocyanin rich tomato on the market to date. Tomatoes high in the antioxidant anothocyanin are quite popular right now and I have been breeding with them for several years. The problem I encountered is that they tend to have a bitter aftertaste. I have tried breeding down several different pathways and culled plants solely on flavor. My first releases Ozark Sunrise and Ozark Sunset were not only tasty but very pretty as well. With Jackie I think I have found the perfect blend of anthocyanin and flavor. They get very purple as they mature on the vine and ripen to a deep black and red. But unlike so many other tomatoes with "blue" in their name, Jackie has a great tomato flavor and a high sugar content. The sugar content comes from one of the parents in this cross and all along the way for selecting it over the years have been based on sweetness. I gave this tomato its name as a Mother's Day present to my Mom Jackie this year. I think it was the best present she got and I am very proud of this tomato. I think you will be quite pleased to have this heavy producing cherry in your garden.
