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 3 cm diagonal spacing. Handle touching the leaves only. When leaves touch, transplant into 10 cm deep pots or trays to 10 cm diagonal spacing. When 10-15 cm high transplant into garden 50 cm spacings in rows. Two rows per 1m wide bed. Needs staking.
