Dwarf — The vigorous, dwarf, regular leaf plants are among the taller growing of the new dwarf varieties. The plants produce excellent yields of medium sized (four to eight ounce) smooth, slightly oblate chocolate colored tomatoes with jagged green and gold stripes. The rich crimson flesh has the intense flavor of black tomatoes but with great balance.

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.
