Another I have pics for and hadn't mentioned, is the Black Kitten Paws F4. They were much later than any of the other lines, but they also set better when earlier ones were dropping blossoms in the heat. Only two made it into big containers, and the other four were planted together in a 5 gallon pot. Well the earlier BKP weren't sweet! But the late losers were really delicious. Saved seed of two of them which had a distinct and equally gorgeous flavor. The color of these is really dark, quite a bit darker than the pink-black Skippers, so really worthy of the name "black".

The first pic is to show typical cluster size for this line - in this first cluster there are 18 fruit iirc, which is just about right IMO, to compensate for the large size of the plant, without getting totally unwieldy (the multi-branched clusters can indeed be unwieldy!).
I stuck my tiny hand in the picture to make the fruit look larger.
