A wonderful lighter pink is 'Odoriko', a Japanese hybrid with perfect balance between sweet and acid flavors.
'Paul Robeson' weighs about 10 to 12 ounces.
'Black Prince', from Siberia, is on the small end of the scale for black tomatoes; it's flavorful and juicy, and can be sweet when it gets enough summer heat.
There are also a couple of great yellows worth noting: the huge (up to 2-pound) 'Pineapple' (yellow with peach blush) and 'Nebraska Wedding'. Both varieties placed highly in tastings.
'Stupice', a Czech variety that's modest in size and cold-tolerant, does particularly well along the coast and in other mild-summer climates.
'Green Zebra' is an heirloom open-pollinated variety that comes true from seed. Its golden yellow base is covered with green stripes, and flavor is on the tart side, too green for some. 'Tigerella' (also called 'Mr. Stripey') has met with better reviews for flavor. It's also on the small side, with yellowish stripes over a red base.
