Japanese Trifele Black Tomato Seeds

Japanese Trifele Black Tomato Seeds

Russian origin specialty

The Japanese Trifele Black tomato, known for its unique appearance and rich flavor, originates from Russia, despite its name's Japanese association. This heirloom variety showcases a distinctive, pear-shaped fruit, with a deep, dark color and irregular ribbing.

Renowned for its complex flavor profile, the Japanese Trifele Black offers a delightful balance of sweetness and acidity, accompanied by a smoky undertone, making it a popular choice among tomato enthusiasts. Its dense flesh and juiciness contribute to its appeal for both fresh consumption and culinary uses like sauces and salads.

This tomato requires warm and sunny conditions to thrive. When planting from seed, provide a well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Starting indoors six to eight weeks before the last frost date gives the plant a head start. Transplant the seedlings when the soil has warmed up and the risk of frost has passed. Adequate spacing and support structures are recommended to prevent sprawling as the plant grows.

The aesthetic of the Japanese Trifele Black plant is equally appealing; its lush foliage and distinctive fruits make it an attractive addition to any garden. Regular watering, consistent care, and support for the vines are crucial for optimal growth and fruit development.

Considered an indeterminate variety, this tomato plant continues to produce throughout the growing season, offering a bountiful harvest of these exquisite fruits.

With its unique appearance, exceptional flavor, and consistent performance, the Japanese Trifele Black tomato remains a favorite among gardeners and culinary enthusiasts alike, adding both visual interest and exceptional taste to gardens and dishes.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

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