Delicious slicer for small spaces. A small plant with abundant flavor, Tasmanian Chocolate retains the superior qualities of its heirloom parentage. Unlike traditional heirlooms, it is well-suited for patios and containers (owing to its tidy plant habit and short stature) and only needs a standard tomato cage for support. These burgundy 4–6 oz., ribbed tomatoes are richly flavored and perfect for slicing onto sandwiches. USDA Certified Organic, This variety is determinate.
Spacing in rows ~6' apart and plant indeterminate varieties 24-36" apart, determinate varieties should be planted 12-24" apart. When planting, remove each plant's lowest leaves and set the root ball in a hole deep enough so that only the top cluster of leaves is above ground. This planting depth is essential for tomato plants, which can form roots along their stems. These extra roots help anchor the plant and allow for better uptake of water and nutrients.
