Tomato, Sokolades (Organic)

(1 customer review)


Solanum lycopersicum. Purple/Brown. 70-80 days. Indet.

 Plants are high yielding of large globes with a rich brown color. Excellent, complex, and delicious flavor common to many so-called black tomatoes. Latvian heirloom that consistently grows very well here in the Willamette Valley. We have found it to be one of the most reliable and best producers of this type. Reminiscent of the classic variety, Cherokee Purple, but we like it much better. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by the Irish Seed Savers Association.

Choose An Option...

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Transplant seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant into the garden after danger of frost has past, typically late May in western Oregon.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit. Place in a small jar and add 50% more water. Wait for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, decant to clean and dry on windowsill.
