Our Black Cherry tomato seeds provide growers with a unique and flavourful small tomato variety that traces its origins to Central America.
These seeds yield tomatoes that are small, often the size of a large marble. They have a distinct deep purple-black hue and offer a sweet, rich taste that sets them apart from the usual red varieties. Their bite-sized nature makes them perfect for snacking or adding to salads.
In Australia, Black Cherry tomatoes are adaptable and thrive well in areas with consistent sunlight. They can adjust to various regions, but like most tomatoes, they prefer warmer climates. These plants show resilience to some common pests, ensuring a healthier crop.
When it comes to culinary uses, Black Cherry tomatoes stand out with their sweet flavour, making them a favourite for fresh eating, salads, and garnishes. Nutritionally, they pack a punch with vitamins A and C, as well as essential minerals.
For optimal growth, it's best to plant these seeds in fertile, well-draining soil. A location with 6-8 hours of sunlight daily is ideal. As the plants grow, they might need some support to bear the weight of the fruit. Regular watering is crucial, but avoid over-saturating the soil.
