Organically Home Grown!! Open Pollinated. Indeterminate. Non GMO. Min. 15 seeds.
A unique variety sure to impress!
Plants produce an abundance of cherry sized fruits that start off blue/green and ripen to red/blue. Fruits become almost entirely blue--almost black--with increased exposure to sun.
Bright, tangy flavor. Higher acidity typical of many blue varieties. Makes a colorful addition to salads.
Highly productive plants. I recommend staking as indeterminate varieties continue to grow all season.
Start indoors 4-6 weeks before average last frost. Harden off in a sheltered location outdoors before transplanting into garden. Transplant seedlings after danger of frost has passed. Plant seedlings deep--bury 1/3 of plant under the soil to encourage root growth and sturdier plants. It is okay to cover 1 or 2 sets of leaves under the soil. Provide lots of space between plants!--I recommend at least 3 or 4 feet between indeterminate varieties. Overcrowding can lead to a variety of problems including mildew and disease.
Good companions: Borage, (repels tomato Hornworm) Marigolds, (a fantastic overall garden companion plant) and Basil.
