TheBlack Cherry tomato is an indeterminate variety that requires staking and pruning to contain its’ sprawling habit. It is a regular-leaf tomato that exhibits exceptional and vigorous growth that can easily reach between 1.8-2.4 m (6-8’) tall. Plants will yield mahogany-brown cherry tomatoes that are borne in huge clusters of 2.5cm (1"), round. Fruits are delicious with sweet, with a complex, rich tomato flavor.
Open pollinated-untreated seeds. Harvest fruit when they are the desired size, colour and firmness. In general, perfectly ripe tomatoes show deep color but still feel firm when gently squeezed. Tomatoes do continue to ripen after being picked. Gently grab and twist until the tomato pulls free from the stem, or use a pair of clippers. Cut stems close to fruits. Always store picked tomatoes at room temperature indoors, or in a shady place outside. Never refrigerate tomatoes, because temperatures below 12.8° C (55° F) cause flavor compounds to break down.
