Black tomatoes

So I saw these black tomatoes.... I could not resist them.
Right now they are half black, half green and green inside.
SIL says they have to be all black before they are ripe.
She also says that she only has flowers on her tomato plants (zone 4 to our zone 7)
so to hangeth in there.

I have never heard of them. I want a taste report.

I've never heard of (or seen) black tomatoes. How do they taste?

My SIL tells me to wait until they are red inside and all black on the outside. So I wait patiently and buy up a lot of tomatoes at the farmers markets around here. :-)

I grew some "heirloom" tomatoes a few years ago and there was one black tomato plant in the bunch. They were sooo good! I had never even heard of them before.
