    I bought a tomatoe plant without a label thinking it was a San Marzano since it was on their tray. Well it's not a tomatoe paste at all. It is the sweetest tomatoe that I've ever tasted! It is so good. I plan to save some seed. Is it a black Krim? If not, anyone know what it could be? I wish I had a name for it.

    It could be a black krim though it looks a little small for that. I'd say the odds of it being open pollinated are real good. Seeds should be good to save.

    It does look like a Black Krim to me.

    :lol: You're so funny cat. That's because I wash dishes by hand. I don't like dishwashers. When our dishwasher broke we replaced it with a wine fridge which we love.

    Are black krims super sweet because this one is. Ridgerunner, it might be small because it's in a 15 gal. tree container.

    Baymule beat me to it. I was thinking possible Cherokee purple, too.

    Bay, that's a good idea. I cut it in a day or 2. I think I picked it a little early.

    There are so many different kinds of purple or black tomatoes, and with California being one of the "foodiest" states out there, It's always possible that it could be a less common variety. And like Ridge mentioned, it's possible that it could be OP. If I were you I would just give it a name yourself, that's what I'm doing with an unnamed orange oxheart tomato that I got from a friend. It's not like you're going to sell the seed from that variety?
