They don’t look *that* black, but seen alongsie the more regular red variety they’re definitely darker. Admittedly, I had never heard of black tomatoes before I spotted these on my local market on Boulevard de Strasbourg, otherwise known as Marche du Cristal, in Toulouse, France. Cristal is one of five main open air markets in Toulouse, there are many other smaller ones. Must try these black tomatoes one day. Apparently, they have,
"an outstanding, salty flavor with a semi smoked
taste that is unlike any other tomato out there." link
More Toulouse tomato porn. Such variety.
