Blue Boar Berries Tomato By Wild Boar Farms

Blue Boar Berries Tomato By Wild Boar Farms

Flavorful Blue Marvel

An extraordinary cherry tomato variety is renowned for its stunning appearance and elevated anthocyanin levels. This remarkable variety offers substantial production and a delightful taste often described as sweet and tangy. Notably, Blue Boar Berries exhibit resilience to sunburn, cracking, and diseases, making them a reliable choice for growers. As these tomatoes ripen, their interior transforms into a captivating brick red-brown, while the exterior can attain an almost black hue. Their impressive hang-on-the-vine capacity and extended shelf life further enhance their appeal.

Sustainably grown in 2.75" pots

Growing: 

Climate: 

Thriving in warm climates, this variety requires ample sunlight—ideally 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily—for robust growth and fruit development. 

Soil Preparation: 

Blue Boar Berries thrive in well-drained, fertile soil. Improve the soil quality by incorporating organic matter like compost. Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (5.6-7.0) for optimal growth. 

Watering: 

Consistent moisture is vital. Deep, infrequent watering encourages a robust root system. Mulching aids in moisture retention and weed suppression. 

Support and Pruning: 

Supporting the plants with stakes or cages is beneficial. Pruning helps manage size and enhances airflow around the plant. 

Fertilization: 

Feed Blue Boar Berries plants with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer during transplanting and when the first fruits appear. Follow recommended dosages for optimal results. 

Harvesting and Storage: 

Harvest Time: 

Ripe fruits display their characteristic purple-blue hues and a slightly soft texture. Harvest with care to avoid damaging the plant. 

Storage: 

Store ripe tomatoes at room temperature away from direct sunlight. Refrigeration might affect the texture and flavor, so consuming them fresh is ideal. 

Culinary Uses: 

Fresh Consumption: 

The unique flavor of the Blue Boar Berries Tomato makes it an excellent addition to salads, garnishes, or as a fresh snack to savor its distinct taste. 

Cooking and Preserving: 

Its sweet-tangy taste adds depth to sauces, preserves, and culinary creations. Additionally, these tomatoes can be preserved through canning or drying for extended use. 

The Blue Boar Berries Tomato from Wild Boar Farms stands as a testament to the possibilities of heirloom tomato breeding. Its captivating appearance, delightful flavor, and manageable growth make it a coveted choice for gardeners and culinary enthusiasts alike.

Planting & Care

Soil and Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.6-7.0. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering. 

Planting and Growing: Provide ample spacing between plants, typically 18-24 inches, to facilitate proper air circulation and accommodate the potential for vigorous growth. Due to the potential for sprawling growth, offer support to Tomato plants early in the season. Staking or caging helps maintain an upright structure. Regular pruning can manage size and stimulate fruit production. 

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest when fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.
