Chocolate Champion

About Chocolate Champion

Developed in the 2006-2013 by the members of the Dwarf Tomato Project from a cross between Golden Dwarf Champion and Cherokee Chocolate (Cheeky family), made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske Small in Australia. It is the collaborative work of Patrina Nuske Small, Ray South (who named it), David Lockwood, Denise Bath, Bill Yoder, Mark Gladney, Ruth TenBrink, Craig LeHoullier and Bill Minkey. Introduced commercially by The Sample Seed Shop and Casey’s Heirloom Tomatoes of Airdrie in 2014. More information about the development of this cultivar can be found on the Dwarf Tomato Project website.
Dwarf (tree-type) plants with regular rugose foliage produce 6-8 oz., round and flattened, brown/black (chocolate) beefsteaks, with slightly ruffled shoulders. Very good full flavor.
