“Black Beauty” is a variety by Brad Gates of Wild Board Farms. The parents are reportedly Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye and Indigo Apple. Black Beauty set fruit early, but did take some time to ripen, as I normally find with anthocyanin varieties. It is one of three or four varieties this year that had a salty flavor to the juices, which I like. I did not taste much in the way of sweetness, but it wasn’t sharply sour either. Limited stock.
