Indeterminate. Chocolate Cherry tomatoes are a unique heirloom that have a deep colour and complex flavour. 1-2 oz attractive brownish-red fruit is sweet & juicy with a refreshing flavour. Prolific 6-8' tall slender vines hold large trusses of seemingly endless fruit that will keep producing until the frost. Indeterminate tomato varieties must be pruned and trellised for ideal plant health and maximum fruit production. Benefits from starting indoors. Seed from small organic farm in British Columbia.
