Brandywine is an acid tomato.  The Russian blacks to which Margaret refers
are wonderfully flavored.  Their complex acid-sweet balance is complemented
by various undernotes.  Black Krim has a salty note; Black from Tula is
almost smokey.  Dinner Plate is on the sweet side, but Druzba, again has an
acid-sweet balance.  All have rich, complex flavors, as do the ones I
recommended earlier--all of which are heirlooms, also.
