Tasmanian Chocolate Certified Naturally Grown Seed

85 days, dwarf — The plants of 'Tasmanian Chocolate' have dark green, regular leaf,  rugose foliage, stout central stems, and grows to three to four feet in height. Perfect for a large pot or garden. The fruit are oblate, ranging from five to twelve ounces, and ripen to a deep mahogany color. Flavor is full, balanced and delicious.

'Tasmanian Chocolate' originated from a cross between 'New Big Dwarf' (an historic large fruited pink dwarf) and 'Paul Robeson', made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. The variety was further selected and named by Linda Reid of Tasmania. Now past its ninth generation, it is a quite stable open-pollinated variety but still may produce the occasional off-type plant.

Others involved in its development were Craig LeHoullier, Lee Newman, Greg Fee, Michael Volk, Tim McElroy, Howard Kushner, Paul Fish and Bill Minkey. This was a Victory Seed Company introduction for 2011 and one of the first introductions from the "Dwarf Tomato Project." Each packet contains 10 seeds.
