Brad's Black Heart NOT produces chubby, plum-shaped, paste-type tomatoes around 25-40grams each, with a pointy end. Dark-red-brown, thick-walled fruits with a pleasant, sweet tomato flavor. Keeps well after picking. The original seeds came to us as 'Brads Black Heart', which is a beefsteak variety. This variety turned out to be this nice little paste-type instead! This is an indeterminate, vining variety of tomato growing to about 200cm in height and spreads some width-wise depending on how much of the suckers are pruned and the choice of staking and support. 75D. 10seeds/pack
Paste-type tomatoes contain less water than "normal" tomatoes and are perfect for tomato sauce, puree, cooking, etc. The fruits are very firm and meaty and not so watery if cooked. Indeterminate tomato varieties will keep on growing the whole summer until the autumn frost. They will keep flowering and setting fruit. The sucker doesn't have to be pruned, but if not the plant will grow extremely large. 1-3 suckers could be spared along the main stem and the rest could be pruned. If not pruned at all the plant might tend to put energy into growing large instead of producing tomatoes on the main stem and the selected suckers. All indeterminate varieties could be staked or supported to avoid fruits laying on the ground.
