These look like little miniature Cherokee Purples (which are technically also "black tomatoes.")

How are the taste of them? Are they good?

If you eat them before they get too ripe they do have a very fruity sweet taste, with just a touch of tomato tang. If you let them get beyond firm ripe the taste is rather bland. I read that if your refrigerate them until chilled they have a somewhat cherry taste. I have not tried that yet.
I have had no problems with disease or cracking. They are a very pretty, smooth tomato skinned tomato.

Which one did you grow this year?
