Black Cherry Tomato - (Lycopersicon lycopersicum)

$3.15

Our Black Cherry Tomato is the only round, truly black cherry we've found.

Early, huge clusters of 1" round, deep purple cherry tomatoes with a blackish hue are irresistibly delicious with a sweet, complex, rich and sometimes salty/smoky flavor, characteristic of the "blacks." Very worthy of a place in the garden and kitchen. Beautiful to mix with other cherries.

Planting Instructions

Indoors: 6 - 8 weeks before last frost sow 1/4" deep and keep soil evenly moist at 60- 70 degrees F. When the second set of leaves appears, transplant seedlings to individual pots.

Harden off 2 weeks before setting out, when weather is fully warm, in a spot with at least 8 hours of sun daily. Plant seedlings up to 2" under the first leaves, at least 3' apart. Water deeply and well in dry weather.

Outdoors: Sow as above, directly in site when weather is warm.

Prolific and tasty
5 Stars

Best tasting cherry tomato I've had. Very sweet with just the right amount of acid. Prolific bearer. Grew larger than I expected, 8x8 sprawling on the ground. Did very well in extreme AZ heat and grew picture perfect.
