75 days. Great flavor, high yields, and marked disease resistance. The indigo coloring (high anthocyanin content) tops it off, making this release from Brad Gates a wholly superior offering. Cherrysized fruits weigh 1-2 ounces and offer the sweet, rich flavor you’d expect from such a dark-fruited type. Great keeper too, whether on the shelf or right on the vine.

Nice but too heterogeneous

What are the pros? Good flavor when ripe

What are the cons? Disease prone, variable size.

Review:

I've never grown a variety that's so heterogeneous in size from plant to plant. Some plants produced tomatoes the size of cherries ( which was expected), while on other plants (the majority) the tomatoes were the size of tennis balls. I think that the breeder needs to re-select the variety to obtain a seed stock that gives less variability from plant to plant. Because the variety is disease prone, next year I'm growing to grow the tomatoes on a conventional trellis as I do for large fruited tomatoes. The tomato cages that I use for cherry tomatoes only work with varieties that are not disease prone.

Review:

The plant grew nicely and tomatoes started to form. I started the seeds in February, transplanted the Tomato plant into the Polytunnel in May. Now it is September and still none have ripened. In beginning of August I snapped off all leafs so the tomatoes could ripen but it hasn't helped. They are all still half green and when I tried one, after reading some others didn't have the tomato turn totally, it was sour and green inside. I harvested some and ripened them indoors, still then had no special flavor. I just had a couple of tomato plants this year and I was very disappointed with this one. I am not going to grow this again.

What are the pros? Very productive

What are the cons? Much bigger than expected.

Review:

I only grew one chocolate chestnut plant, so perhaps I had an unusual experience. The tomatoes were way larger than expected. The smallest were over 2 ounces (golf ball) and the largest were 6 ounces (softball). The color also looked different than I expected. The tomatoes that had some exposure to sunlight had dark green shoulders, not blue or black. The ones on the interior of the plant were just plain dark red/purple color. Other than being different from my expectations, this was a great plant! Very prolific and healthy. The tomatoes are good to eat, though not special. I made many of them into sauce, which came out a beautiful dark color. I was thrilled to have such a large harvest of big tomatoes, so I will save seed this year and see if I get another plant like this one next time.

What are the pros? truly delicious, pretty, healt

Review:

This carries the true flavor of black tomatoes. Has the richness of Cherokee purple or black krim in compact, well formed tomatoes. They are strikingly beautiful too and held their form well. I had very little splitting or loss. Highly recommend!
