If extraordinary flavor is why you grow tomatoes, it is our pleasure to share our Organic Black Cherry Tomato seeds with you! Her luminescent purple fruit are exceedingly prolific, perfect for salads and kabobs on the grill. Black Cherry, like all ‘black’ tomatoes, has an incredible depth of flavor, an almost raspberry-like richness that we’ve never tasted in other tomatoes. Enjoy every bite!
At Fruition, we sow tomatoes in soil blocks indoors 2 months before final frost, early April for us here in Zone 5, germinating them on heat mats with ease. Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings.
