Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Japanese Black Trifele Tomato Seeds
Lycopersicon esculentum Japanese Black Trifele Tomato Seeds (70 days)
Sustainably Grown Approx. 25 heirloom seeds
Indeterminate. Despite the name "Japanese" Black Trifele this tomato comes from deep within Russia!
Japanese Black Trifele is a potato leaf variety that yields tons of mahogany-colored fruit in the shape of a pear and literally about the same size. The flavor and taste is unparreled even beating out Black from Tula in taste tests. Japanese Black Trifele's luscious fruit seems to never stop producing gobs of tomatoes all summer season. You will not need to plant more that a few plants that is for sure.
Excellent for fresh eating, salads and makes a rich complex tomato sauce.
California Grown Heirloom Seed This tomato not only did great here, I honestly got tired of picking it! There were so many tomatoes I couldn't keep up. Unlike a lot of black tomatoes that split or show concentric cracking, Japanese Black Pear is blemish free. This is a great black tomato for BLTs as well.
