75 Days. Black Vernissage is another new addition to our tomato repertoire. Like the Pink Vernissage version, it was born in the Ukraine. Beautiful 2 oz meaty fruits are perfect for kabobs, roasting and many more culinary uses. Makes great sauce. Great complex flavour. The weight of the fruits was enough to break their support canes. These are half the size of “Pink Boar” tomatoes.
The term “vernissage” is when artwork is debuted for the first time.

How to germinate Black Vernissage 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!
