70 days. Massive trusses of purple-mauve cherries with a smoky blush. The small cherries are a 1/2 to 1 inch across and contain very few seeds--superb for fresh eating, yet solid enough for cooking or for making a deep, rich red tomato paste. Superior balance of sweetness and acidity, with a rich, lingering aftertaste. This variety was the winner of an All America’s Select Award in 2017, and deservingly so ... it’s delish! The Rosella tomato has been championed by James Wong, a well-known ethnobotanist and nutritionally minded gardener from the U.K. Possibly the best selection of a “black” cherry for the fresh market grower.
