Description

This stunning new cocktail cherry tomato from Oregon State University, produces strong-flavoured fruit, which is deepest chocolate brown with rosy undersides and deep red tasty flesh. With very high anthocyanin levels, it produces huge yields of 2-2.5 cm fruit with quite incredible potential for up to 500-1,000 per plant under ideal conditions. Bred by Dr Jim Myers using traditional plant breeding techniques, the colour comes from wild tomatoes found in the Galapagos Islands and Peru. (Cordon)

Sowing Advice

Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
