Description: Indeterminate. From the Henry Harrington Collection in 2005. This is a stunning tomato, egg shaped and “black”. Black tomatoes have been showing up in Mark’s trials as having superior nutritional qualities and all of the ‘black’ tomatoes have a real richness and depth of flavour.

Planting Instructions: Plant into trays late September and prick out when first leaves appear at 3cm diagonal spacing. Handle touching the leaves only. When leaves touch, transplant into 10cm deep pots or trays to 10cm diagonal spacing. When 10-15cm high transplant into garden 50cm spacings in rows. Two rows per 1m wide bed. Needs staking.
