Name That Tomato !

I bought it from the fruits section of Kroger. It was in a section called "HEIRLOOM" tomatoes.
General outside color resembled Blak Krim. But it's shape is different and bigger. The taste, as far as I can tell, is very similar to BK. : Not sour, not sweets, creamy soft.
The flesh is NICE red color of varying shade EXCEPT the seed pockets that is are green.

In this picture you are seeing the inside

I see nobody wants to touch this wit a six foot pole : Hmmmm

RE: Name That Tomato !

If you got it at Kroger, probability that it is Heirloom Black, a hybrid introduced to compete in the commercial "heirloom" market.

RE: Name That Tomato !

Thanks Farmerdill ... yes, It was marked"Heirloom". As you pointed out it is some kind of so-called BLACK. I figure it must be productive to grow it commercially. My Black Krim performed very poorly this past season. I hope that this one will be better.
