The tomato variety, Tomato Black Kuro Cherry is a modern variant (improved disease resistant form) of the highly popular black cherry tomato variety. As outlined by its name, Tomato Black Kuro Cherry produces an abundance of small (25 - 30mm round), crisp and juicy dark coloured (black) cherry tomato fruits. Like all black tomato varieties, the flavour of the Tomato Black Kuro Cherry fruit has a distinct fragrant tang, making the small fruit a popular choice for adding flavour to tossed salads and a touch of flair to others. The variety Tomato Black Kuro Cherry is one of the earliest fruiting varieties of tomato (typical harvest period is 8 - 9 weeks from germination), which is both long-lived, and a strong producer, which is sure to provide an extremely rewarding experience for any gardener. Provided Tomato Black Kuro Cherry plants have enough calcium (add lime to the soil if the base of fruit starts to turn brown and rot), the fruit is very long-lasting and can last up to 2-weeks in the kitchen fruit-bowl. This variety does best if it is staked (not compulsory) and remember, like all tomato varieties, will require a sunny spot in the garden and for the leaves to remain dry during watering. Marigolds can be inter-planted with this tomato variety, as they act as a natural insect pest repellent, please visit our store for more details.

What can I say?! Climbing Fig has done it again. Exceptional service, Speedy Postage and most if all Seed Quality. We've managed to plant out our Tomatoes into the poly tunnels and they are already the envy of the neighbours. I've even used the black kuros seedlings as part of a trade (neighbour has a type of beetroot I've been looking at) fetched one pack of seeds for the 2 seedlings. Points to the Fig for providing a tomato that is disease resistant, high germination rate and prolific producer. I'm even trialling them 3 ways! Upside down, containers and in straw bales. Let see if they can live up to the description and the upper Hunter Valley Winter. Happy gardening folks!
