About La Cadero

‘La Cadero’ is one of the darkest tomatoes in the World. A beautiful, high anthocyanin expression shows up on the fruits very early. Sun exposed fruits are almost black before they will start to ripen. This variety was developed by Bruno Fournier of France in 2014. It was selected by Bruno from the F2 line of the ‘Berkeley Tie Dye’ and ‘Indigo Apple’ cross made by Brad Gates, so it is a sister line to ‘Black Beauty’ tomato.
Medium-sized (7 oz./200g), oblate fruits have dark flesh and green gel. Good, well-balanced tomato taste. Indeterminate, compact plants grow up to about 1.50m tall. Regular leaf foliage, very healthy and prolific vines. Midseason, about 80 days to maturity.
