Black-skinned tomatoes with extra yum

Is it new? No, it isn'! Strange though it may seem, people have been eating black tomatoes for more than a century. It's a natural variation that first occurred in the Ukraine, and the gorgeous, shiny black fruits have such a wonderful flavour, that once you've tried them, you won’t look back! Plus, that black colour indicates a heavy load of natural antioxidants to add to the nutritional boost you get from eating your own home-grown tomatoes.

How to Sow

Tomatoes are best sown in trays about 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow seeds about 5mm deep and keep the soil temperature to about 20 celcius until germination. Once the plants have grown their second leaves the seedlings can be transplanted into larger individual pots. Keep the tomato seedlings in a warm sunny position and maintain moisture levels. When planting out, position the plants so that soil covers the entire stem up to the first leaves. This will increase root development and ensure a healthy strong plant. Plants should be placed in full sun and rich soil.

How to Harvest

Tomatoes ripened on the vine will be ready once they show their mature colour. The fruits can also be squeezed and should yield slightly when ripe. If frost occurs and temperatures drop late in the season all tomatoes can be picked. Tomatoes that do not ripen on the vine can be ripened indoors by being placed in a warm place out or direct sun.
