‘Sprinkles’ a fave for flavour
By Dave Harrison
December 2015 — Vegetable growers, market farmers and home gardeners agree: the new cherry-sized tomato ‘Chocolate Sprinkles’ from PanAmerican Seed is outstanding, with a unique look and full-bodied tomato flavour…
In trial locations across the country, feedback is positive on many levels: looks, taste and plant performance. The fruit’s red colour with dark-green overlay/striping gives it its “chocolaty” appearance – a unique look for eating fresh or incorporating into summer dishes.
The indeterminate plants continue to produce firm, crack-resistant fruit all season for a long harvest window. In addition, ‘Chocolate Sprinkles’ offers higher disease resistance than similar striped cherry varieties (Fusarium Race 1, Nematodes and Tobacco Mosaic Virus).
