first BLACK tomatoes

UK garden centre grows Britain's first BLACK tomatoes (and they could help fight cancer)

A plant nursery has become the first in Britain to grow BLACK tomatoes.

The unusual fruit, which has a jet black skin, is among the first in the world to contain anthocyanins, an antioxidant thought to have a number of health benefits.

Its unusual colour stems from pigments in the skin which develop when exposed to sunlight.
