Tomato - Black Prince
Black Prince tomatoes are juicy, round tomatoes with warm, rich colors and robust, full-bodied flavor. Some say it's the tastiest tomato of all.
Not much needs to be done to this tomato, slice it, wedge it or dice it are serve it raw in salads and pair it with burrata or fresh mozzarella and basil for a traditional Italian Caprese salad or combine it with other heirloom tomatoes for a beautiful and flavorful summer tomato salad or side dish. Generally, all heirloom tomatoes pair well with grilled or wood roasted red meats and flakey white fish and seafood. They also make great additions to pizzas, pastas, sauces, soups, and sandwiches.
Originally from Siberia, this is one of the most popular and favored black tomatoes. Originally introduced from Irkutsk, Russia and is regarded as a "true Siberian tomato" that does very well in cooler climates. Until only recently this was considered a rare variety in the United States. However, it's popularity has grown so much in Russia that there is now a company in Volograd that is producing an extract of the Black Prince called "Black Prince Tomato Oil." The Black Prince tomato is said to have considerable health benefits beyond the presence of lycopene.
