Gum Drop Black, a hybrid F1 cherry tomato, is a fruit vegetable. The plant sets small "perfect" flowers, followed by beautiful 1-inch, black-striped fruits with an intense sweet flavor. Tomatoes are considered a superfood for their nutrient rich content, having a high (top 20) Aggregate Nutrient Density Index score (ANDI), or micronutrient-per-calorie density. Tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C and provide vitamin A and potassium. They also contain carotenoid lycopene and beta-carotene as well as phenolic acids and flavonoids.

Grown as an annual, Gum Drop Black F1 Hybrid Cherry Tomato, an herbaceous tender perennial, is a member of the nightshade family (Solanaceae), which contains plants that typically grow in temperate to tropical regions. A compact semi-determinant variety, it may require staking or caging for support. Blossoms and fruit continue to develop as the vine grows. So, it bears fruit over the course of a season, producing an incredible yield per plant.

Gum Drop Black F1 Hybrid Cherry Tomato prefers full sun and moist, humusy, deep, fertile loams. Self-pollinating, it will bear fruit without any pollen from other varieties.

A warm-season vegetable, sensitive to cold temperatures and frost, tomato seeds should be direct sown into warm spring soil after all danger of frost has passed. Seeds can also be started indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the first frost date and transplanted. Flowers begin to set fruit with night temperatures between 55 and 75°F. Protect plants with row covers if temperatures are expected to dip below 50°F. Mulching helps to moderate soil temperature and to maintain soil moisture.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
