Purple Tomatoes, Black Tomatoes.

Purple tomatoes help prevent cancer.  Okay if you'd read The Body Friendly Zen Cookbook you'd already have guessed that, the purple colour (or any strong colour, especially greens, reds, and purples) indicate a useable level of antioxidants.

In fact, "kumato" tomatoes are also very good in this regard.  They appear to have been bred for a black colour and lower sugar content, a slightly milder flavour, and were I believe developed directly for supermarkets.  But by now you can expect to find purple to black tomatoes with lower sweetness on shelves everywhere.  Go for them.
