Description
Chocolate LightningCertified Naturally Grown Seed Certified Naturally Grown Seed

80 days, tree-type — 'Chocolate Lightning' was bred by the "Dwarf Tomato Project" and introduced commercially by the Victory Seed Company for the 2015 gardening season.

The vigorous, dwarf, regular leaf plants are among the taller growing of the new dwarf varieties. The plants produce excellent yields of medium sized (four to eight ounce) smooth, slightly oblate chocolate colored tomatoes with jagged green and gold stripes. The rich crimson flesh has the intense flavor of black tomatoes but with great balance.

This variety originated with a cross between 'Dwarf Wild Fred' and 'Beauty King' made by Vince Lavallo and named "Beauty."  'Chocolate Lightning' was selected and named by Vince. The "Beauty family" is very complex and a few surprises could result when growing this variety, with stripes of different colors. Among those who contributed to stabilizing this new dwarf variety are Robin Bort, Susan Oliverson, Lisa Moore, Patrick Sullivan, Bill Yoder, Roberto, Caro del Castillo, Desire Sommers, Jenna D’Amore, and Craig LeHoullier. The starting seed sample was grown out and supplied by Bill Minkey. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

In an effort to keep this variety available to home gardeners, 'Chocolate Lightning' has been released by "The Dwarf Tomato Project" (the breeder) to the public under the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI). You have the freedom to use these OSSI-Pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, if you save seeds or use 'Chocolate Lightning' to breed a new variety, you pledge not to restrict others' use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives.
