60 days.  The fruits from this recent open pollinated introduction are absolutely beautiful.  When unripe they have a green background over laid with mauve, the shoulders and streaks are the darkest of purples. The purple streaks are replaced with fine dark green lines as the fruit ripens to a strawberry red. The taste is very good; sweet and complex.  The flesh is firm, almost crunchy. No worry about splitting.  Will travel very well for farmer’s markets  and probably has really good storage life for restaurants. I can see this new introduction become very popular in the years to come.

How to germinate Black Strawberry tomato seeds:

Sow 5 mm deep. Keep moist; plastic cover improves success. Opt. germination temp: 18-25 C. Days to germ: 5-10. All tomatoes drop their blooms when temperatures reach 85 F or greater, so make sure your tomatoes don’t get over heated. Blossom end rot is a nutritional disorder where a lack of calcium causes the fruit to rot from the blossom end so be sure you use something like rock phosphate (22% calcium) when amending your tomato beds/growing medium. Use mulch to retain moisture or prevent water from splashing up on your plants as tomatoes hate having their foliage wet…NEVER WATER FROM ABOVE…its like someone splashing a cold bucket of water on you!
