This new purple tomato, unlike its red cousins, contains high levels of anthocyanins. This naturally occurring chemical found in dark fruit pigments such as blueberries and grapes, acts as an antioxidant. In addition Tomato Chocolate Cherry, like all tomatoes, contains high levels of the antioxidant lycopene.

Tomato Chocolate Cherry makes an ideal salad tomato. It produces extremely flavoursome cherry tomatoes, borne on trusses of 6-8 fruits. Growth habit is indeterminate, otherwise known as a cordon. Chocolate Cherry produces heavy yields some 70 days after planting until the first frosts. Suitable for indoor and outdoors in a sunny frost-free position.
