Dwarf Tasmanian Chocolate
This one took me by surprise. Why? I did not realize when I bought the seed that it was part of the dwarf tomato project. I am ashamed to say that I thought it was a cherry type! Sometimes it pays to read seed descriptions a bit better. Duh! Well, as I patiently waited for little chocolate colored fruit I noticed what a dense, thrifty looking group of plants they were. Deep green, short with thick foliage. I did not even need to waste the tall posts I had them staked with. Then, those little cherry fruits started to grow...and grow and grow some more. What?!? I got ripped off by the seed vendor! I went back and check the listing and actually READ the whole description. What a dim-bulb I can be. What I had was an outstanding variety that as I recall, was developed in Australia (oh yeah, Tasmania...duh AGAIN!). What a terrific screw up! I loved it! These deep brown/red slightly flattened fruit were just great AND this is a great choice for container growing. I recommend Tasmanian Chocolate for anybody who has space restraints and want to try something a bit different.
