This year I tried chocolate cherry tomatoes in my garden. I'll admit I wasn't quite sure what to expect from them. I was hoping for interesting color, but what I got was an amazing cherry tomato bursting with flavor.
Although the fruit didn't ripen until the end o August, these delightful chocolate tomatoes were worth the wait. Each cherry tomato is round and plump - approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter - and a deep brown-red that actually resembles the color of chocolate. The flesh inside the tomato is the same delicious shade of brown-red.
But it wasn't just the color of these cherry tomatoes that impressed me. The flavor is amazing. These juicy little morsels are sweet and mild with a hint of fresh plums. Some seed catalogs describe them as tangy, but I don't agree.
If you are looking for a new variety of cherry tomatoes to add to your collection, I recommend giving the chocolate cherry tomato a try.
Until next time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
