About La Cadero

‘La Cadero’ is a beautiful, mahogany-colored tomato with very dark shoulders – a high anthocyanin expression that shows up on the fruits very early. Sun-exposed tomatoes are almost black before they start to ripen. This variety was selected by Bruno Fournier of France in 2014 from the F2 line of the ‘Berkeley Tie Dye’ and ‘Indigo Apple’ cross made by Brad Gates. It is a sister line to ‘Black Beauty’, ‘Clelia’, ‘Beaussetane’, ‘Ebro’, ‘San Nari’, ‘San Ceri’, ‘Marie Antoinette’, and ‘Bandol Blues’ tomatoes.
Medium-sized (7oz./200g), oblate fruits have dark flesh and green gel with a good, well-balanced tomato taste. Indeterminate, compact plants grow up to about 4.9ft./1.50m tall. Regular leaf foliage; very healthy and prolific vines. Mid-season, about 80 days to maturity.
