Indet., potato leaf leaf plants. Beautiful purple/black fruits are plum to pear-shaped and have darker black shoulders. They are slightly ruffled at the stem end, and hence probably the name. 1-4 oz. Very good balanced flavor. Very high yields.

  • Found in a row of Pruden's Purple tomatoes, along with the Evan's Purple Plum, by Brad Gates, the owner of the Wild Boar Farms in Northern California. This tomato had small fluted ribs on the top, and this was why Brad called it Boar's Hoof. Brad thought it was a mutation of Pruden's Purple.
  • First offered in the Seed Savers 2008 Yearbook by Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio (OH AN A).
