The Black Plum Tomato offers an exotic twist to traditional tomato varieties. Originating from Russia, this heirloom variety has been prized for generations for its unique shape and coloring, a blend of deep reds and smoky purples.
Whether you're crafting homemade salsa, delectable bruschettas, or simple garden salads, the Black Plum Tomato stands out both in flavor and visual appeal. Its rich, slightly tangy taste makes it a versatile culinary element, while its small, plum-like size makes it an excellent choice for canning and preserving.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Being an indeterminate variety, Black Plum Tomatoes will continually produce fruit throughout the season. These plants are quite tall, often reaching heights between 4-6 feet, and will require staking or caging for optimal fruit production. Plant the seeds 1/4 inch deep in well-drained soil with a pH range of 6.0-6.8. Space them 36 inches apart in rows that are 48 inches apart. Ensure that they receive full sun for most of the day for best results.
