“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 sets fruit early, but similar to most anthocyanin varieties, does take some time to ripen. It is one of a few varieties I have tasted that has 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.
