OH A heritage variety originally from the Black Sea area in Russia. These tomatoes have a very unique full flavour that we love. Produces very large fruit, but not as many fruit per plant as most of our other tomatoes. Black tomatoes have gained popularity recently as they are said to have very high nutritional content. Annual, indeterminate, height to 1m, frost tender.
Sow in August into trays in a glasshouse. Keep soil temp at 18-20°C for ideal germination. Prick out when true leaves appear to 4cm diagonal spacing. Pot on to small pots to further develop roots. Transplant after last frost to 40cm diagonal spacing into fertile ground in direct sun. Stake and de-lateral as needed.
