70 days, dwarf — 'Chocolate Champion' is a rugose, regular leaf dwarf type plant that produces lots of small to medium (two to six ounce), oblate fruit that are red with chocolate-brown shoulders. The flavor is nicely balanced and very tasty. Both appearance and flavor resemble 'Cherokee Chocolate'.

Developed by members of the "Dwarf Tomato Project" from a cross between 'Golden Dwarf Champion' and 'Cherokee Chocolate'.  'Chocolate Champion' is the result of 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. It was introduced in 2014.
Didn’t live up to Cherokee Chocolate grown Indoors
I love Cherokee Chocolate. It’s one of my favorite annual re-grows. I was hoping for a mini version to grow indoors under lights. Nope. It lacks CCs depth of flavor. *Note was grown indoors only.

VSC NOTES: Thank you for your review and for the disclaimer. It is very useful to hear how varieties perform in various growing conditions, including indoor grows where fruit complexity may not develop in the absence of sunlight.

A very good slicing tomato for those who tend to a more tart preference
It may look like Cherokee Chocolate, but is a bit more mild in flavor, and a bit more tart - so it is just a different personality in an attractive, good sized slicing tomato.
