Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

80 Days to Harvest 

10-14 ounce fruits (big fist sized)

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


A highly productive black heirloom with excellent flavor that’s been gaining more notoriety and popularity recently and winning tomato taste tests. Very dark skin, smooth blocky-round fruit, and meaty texture that holds together when sliced. They also have a long production window, making Carbon one of our favorites year after year.


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
