Mid season.

Not only the best dark cherry tomato, it is just plain delicious by any standard; the perfect balance of sweet and spritely, with a lot of depth.

Not plagued by cracking like many of the flavorful cherries.

Keeps well, if you can get out of the garden without eating them all. Indeterminate vines.

BOTANICAL NAME: Solanum lycopersicum

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Start in flats or pots 2 months or so before setting out. Transplant into well-composted soil after danger of frost is past.

Needs lots of potassium, phosphorous, but not as much nitrogen. Needs calcium to prevent blossom-end rot; use gypsum or bone meal if necessary. Keep soil most in dry weather with periodic, deep watering and mulch.
