Red Velvet tomatoes just may be your next favorite cherry tomato. Red velvet tomatoes are small cherry tomatoes, producing fruits that are deep red and 1" in diameter. These tomatoes produce a fuzz, similar to peach fuzz that will diminish and disappear when the fruit ripens.

The Red Velvet variety is a vigorous plant that produces unique blue-green foliage that has a silvery hue, reminiscent of dusty miller. The fruits are exceptionally sweet and are delicious to eat right off of the plant. The fruits are so tasty in fact that the flavor crowned this variety winner of the 2009 Tomato Tasting at SSE's Heritage Farm.

These plants are a vine type and require trellises or supports as they grow. Grows equally well in containers or garden beds. The foliage and fruits are hardy and will continue to grow and produce even after a frost.

If you're a fan of gorgeous, silvery, wooly foliage and tons of flavor, the Red Velvet is the tomato for you. This tomato has explode-in-your mouth flavor that most other 'pretty' tomato plants lack.

Start seeds indoors and transplant after the threat of frost has passed. Water tomato plants at the ground and avoid getting water on the foliage to help prevent fungal disease. If overhead watering is the only option, water early in the morning so that the plants have time to dry.

Open Pollinated. Days to germination: 2-3 days
