Quite possibly my favorite tomato on the farm...but don't tell the others!

Season after season, Sgt Pepper's Tomato is the crowned jewel of our gardens at Carmel Bella Farm. This magical variety produces incredibly high yields of the most stunning heart-shaped (ox-heart) fruits with attractive shades of deep purples and pinks…my favorite! As the fruit ripens, the smooth shoulders darken further, almost turning completely black with a deep red base. The purple and black colors on this fruit become more prominent when exposed to more sunlight. I have always been one who is fond of tomatoes with that beautiful purple pigment, but these take the cake with their stunning color, shape, production and top notch flavor.
