I received a free packet of black vernissage seeds, planted them, and they grew beautifully, although the plant didn't produce much fruit. At the end of the season, I cut the plant back to the base, as I do with all my tomatoes. The plant has come right back, not from seed, but from the stem. It's even blooming! We're in Northern California, and not in a zone that generally freezes, but I've still never had a tomato plant that just wanted to keep on going like this. Is this common for the black vernissage?
Hi Marcia, it can happen frequently with tomato plants, especially if they have a strong root system. I wouldn't say that it is common to this variety, but just to tomatoes with a "will to live". Maybe you'll get some more tomatoes off of it.
