Cherokee Chocolate Tomato | Certified Organic by Ecocert Canada Solanum lycopersicum | Annual | Open Pollinated | Heirloom
Indeterminate. Regular leaf, 8-12 oz brick orange/brown/black beefsteaks with excellent flavor. Large sprawling vines need caging or staking, productive, large 10-16 oz fruit that turn from orange to rich brownish red, good flavor like that of Cherokee Purple.
Planting tip: Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before planting date. Reduce water and nitrogen intake when hardening off. Staking required for indeterminate type.
Harvesting tip: For best taste harvest when the tomato is fully ripe and has expressed all its full color. One can also harvest when the tomato is green and has expressed its first blush; in this case, let tomato ripen off-vine at a temperature above 21°C.
Storage tip: Store at 12-21°C with a relative humidity of 95%. Tomato may damage at a temperature of 10°C.
