Black Cherry Tomato

75 days. A great find, this glistening, ebony-purple gem is a 1" wide, perfectly round variety with an incomparably sweet and complex flavor. Its indeterminate vines yield prolific quantities of ripe Black Cherries that are easy to spot and pick. Once you have grown them, you will have to make space for them in your garden every year. Black Cherry and Sungold are our two favorites, and are quite addictive! (OP.)

Absolutely nothing compares to eating a sun-warmed, homegrown Tomato straight off the vine. This garden mainstay is easily grown and most rewarding. Start seed in a warm, bright, well-ventilated area six to eight weeks before setting out. Transplant out after the last spring frost date. To encourage stockiness, sink seedlings deeper into the well-enriched soil than you grew them - soil should cover the lowest layer of leaves. Position stakes, cages or supports at that time to avoid disturbing the plants later on. Keep soil evenly moist and well-fertilized. Once harvested, store Tomatoes at room temperature, as anything below 50°F destroys the enzyme that gives Tomatoes their flavor. When a variety is said to have determinate vines, it means that the vines top out and all of the fruit ripens at once. When a variety is said to have indeterminate vines, it means that the vines keep growing and bearing fruit until a killing frost. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.
