An All America Selections Award Winner. Chef's Choice Black provides at least 2 dozen 8-10 oz. rounded, slightly flattened, meaty beefsteak type tomatoes in a rich maroon color with green accents. Savor the juicy, sweet, slightly salty flavor sliced in sandwiches or salads. Indeterminate, 5 ft. vines are resistant to Tomato Mosaic virus, Fusarium and Verticillium wilt.
Growing Chef’s Choice Black Hybrid Tomato Seeds
Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 75-90°F., germination is in 8-15 days. Transplant into the garden 2-4 ft. apart after all danger of frost.
Hybrid tomatoes often grow too large for the typical 3 foot tomato cage. We have found the following staking method provides sufficient support for these vigorous plants. Begin by tying each plant to one 6 foot stake. Then create a 2 foot square with 4 more stakes around each plant. Wrap garden twine around the stakes at 6 inch intervals up the square, adding more rows of twine as your plants get taller.
